Arts Expands Beyond The Modern Tradition Of The Art Gallery




A group show just outside of Leeds titled ‘Other Rooms’ gathers eight artists whose practice encapsulates a wide diversity of approaches, from performance and painting to film, sculpture and installation.

Each artist will react to the physical characteristics of Basement Arts Project’s gallery environment and reconsider the life of the art object when it is contextualised outside of the ideological space of the “ white cube”. BasementArtsProject’s ‘Other Rooms’ acts as a fulcrum where artworks expand into a notional consideration of space beyond the modern tradition of the art gallery. This analysis of alternative spaces suggests a reflection on the vocabulary of territories, institutions, boundaries, and their related systems of inclusion and exclusion, representation and de-presentation.

Work Includes Artists: Hanz Hancock, Patrick Morrissey, Charley Peters, Giulia Ricci , Sarah Sparkes, Andy Wicks, Ben Woodeson, John Workman

BasementArtsProject is a grassroots arts venue located in a pre-war, mid-terrace house in Beeston, LS11. Established in 2011 it provides a much needed rent-free site for exhibitions and projects. BasementArtsProject seeks to facilitate and promote the activities of artists within the city of Leeds.
