Close to Home | 11 – 30 July
An exhibition and symposium to celebrate ten years of the network Land2. A collaboration between Land2, East Street Arts and the School of Design, University of Leeds
Venue: Patrick Studios
St Mary’s Lane, Leeds LS9 7EH.
Dates and Times:
Wednesday 11th July – Monday 30th July
(Monday to Friday 12pm – 6pm)
This exhibition is a development of network Land2′s ongoing research into how art practices might contribute to a nuanced understanding of specific places and their communities. All the artists in this exhibition engage with places in their immediate vicinity. The works on show offer ways to make sense of the complexity of experiences, histories and activities in these localities. There is an interrogation of the quotidian, the everyday, the familiar, the marginalised and the unnoticed.
Friday 20th July (12pm – 7pm)
Friday 20th July (7pm – 9pm)

The symposium sets out to open up a discussion about the relationship between the local, visual art and cultural geography, and what relevance such an exploration might have in the contemporary situation.
Note: Keynote speaker Dr. Karen Till, NUI Maynooth, invited speaker Tina Richardson, University of Leeds.
