‘Work Together, Play Together’
5-9pm Thursday 1st march 2012
Film Screening and publication exhibition

Art event on Thursday 1st March in an empty space in Leeds City Centre. Artists in Leeds are often asked to be creative when thinking about sites to respond to and ways to present their work. In addition there is a tradition of individuals sustaining a creative practice by working collectively or collaboratively. Art in Unusual Spaces would like to celebrate and unpick this by inviting film and publication submissions of new or existing work in response to theme of work, play, collaboration, collectivity, domestic and commercial spaces.

Artists include:
Kristyna Baczynski, Lucy Barker & Ben Ncm, Violaine Bergoin, Joanna Brinton, Stephanie Bryant, Clare Charnley & Patricia Azevedo, Annie Carpenter, Lex Clarke. Amy Connor, Rosie Curtis, The Den Project, Jade Ellis, Carrie Lent, Paul Matosic, Abi Mitchell & Josie Wells, The Print Project, Sam Renseiw, Michael Szpakowski, Topical Jungle, Harry van de Bospoort, Ben Warren, Philip Welding and more to be confirmed
