Venue Leeds Art Gallery
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, Chloe Brown, Sophie Calle, Helen Cammock, Helen Chadwick, Rebecca Chesney, Jesse Darling, Milena Dragicevic, Michelle Duxbury, Feed project, Anthea Hamilton, Mona Hatoum, Young In Hong, Leeds Animation Workshop, Yve Lomax, Marketa Luskacova, Melanie Manchot, Sam Metz, Lisa Milroy, Margaret Murray, Matrix Feminist Architecture, Cornelia Parker, Susan Philipsz, susan pui san lok, Tai Shani, Lynn Silverman, Hannah Starkey, Magda Stawarska, George Storm Fletcher, Rhea Storr, Anne Tallentire and Elizabeth Wright.
