More about the exhibitions:
Alfred Drury and the New Sculpture
An exhibition exploring the art and life of Alfred Drury (1856-1944): His influences, his practice and his role in the ‘New Sculpture’ movement.
Alfred Drury was one of the leading sculptors of the late Victorian and Edwardian periods, and creator of the much-talked-of bronze nude light standards in City Square, Leeds. The exhibition will review the art and life of Alfred Drury RA (1856-1944), addressing the formative influences on his sculptural practice and his role in the New Sculpture movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Included within the exhibition will be some of Drury’s most important, smaller-scale, sculptural works, including his most characteristic masterpieces Griselda, The Age of Innocence and Lilith.
Ian Kiaer: Tooth House

Ian Kiaer (b. 1971) repurposes debris to create props and proposals for perceiving objects in space, asking questions of value and form. He uses discarded and humble materials, such as packing foam, chocolate wrappers, Perspex sheets abandoned in the street and standard-sized paper. These materials he cajoles and seduces into artworks in his studio, using titles as tools to tune his sculptural environments. Each title holds a specific connection to a project by a thinker who made radical proposals for understanding interactions with natural and technological environments.

Tooth House brings together a selection of Kiaer’s works made between 2005 and 2014, the most recent created in response to the galleries of the Henry Moore Institute.


Including work by Alice Chandler, George Garthwaite, Florence Mytum, Liv Preston, Sam Shackleton and Elinor WadmanInterim. Interim is an annual exhibition open to all current penultimate year BA Fine Art students at British art schools who have previously completed their foundation course at Leeds College of Art.

This year’s Interim has been selected by artist Nick Thurston and Nigel Walsh, curator of Contemporary Art, Leeds Art Gallery.
