Visit the latest exhibition at Leeds Art Gallery – Found Cities, Lost Objects.

Explore the urban environment through the eyes of women and gender non-conforming artists in an Arts Council Collection touring exhibition curated by Turner Prize-winning artist and cultural activist Lubaina Himid CBE.

Found Cities, Lost Objects addresses themes ranging from safety and navigation to concepts of belonging and power. It acknowledges the privileges which allow some people to roam freely, while also considering the boundaries that may curb the experiences of others. The works shown encourage you to reflect on your everyday experiences and your relationship with the built environment. How do the buildings, streets and neighbourhoods you inhabit shape you and your life? Can you envision an inclusive city which is welcoming for everyone?

The exhibition features works from the Arts Council Collection and Leeds Art Gallery’s collection together with works by artists based in Leeds and Yorkshire. Artists featured include: Dani Abulhawa, Manuela Amey, Phyllida Barlow, Chloë Brown, Sophie Calle, Hackney Flashers, Helen Cammock, Helen Chadwick, Rebecca Chesney, Jesse Darling, Milena Dragicevic, Michelle Duxbury, Feed, Anthea Hamilton, Mona Hatoum, Young In Hong, Leeds Animation Workshop, Yve Lomax, Markéta Luskačová, Melanie Manchot, Caroline Mardon, Sam Metz, Lisa Milroy, Jade de Montserrat, Maggie Murray, Krissi Musiol, Matrix Feminist Architecture, Cornelia Parker, Pavilion, Phyllis Pearsall, Susan Philipsz, susan pui san lok, Tai Shani, Lynn Silverman, Nicola Singh, Hannah Starkey, Magda Stawarska, George Storm Fletcher, Rhea Storr, Anne Tallentire and Elizabeth Wright.
