East Street Arts is proud to present ‘Common Bodies’, an immersive exhibition of new and existing video works by over 30 artists drawn from an international open call.
Dates & Times:
Friday 19th – Thursday 25th June 2015
Tue – Thu (10am – 5pm) Sat (1pm – 5pm)
Venue: East Street Arts Project Space
Patrick Studios, St Mary’s Lane, Leeds, LS9 7EH
Curated and produced by artist Tom McGinn, the exhibition examines the tensions and (dis-) continuities between video and sculpture, and the varying demands they make of their audiences.
Drawing comparisons to our daily, collective engagement with both the virtual and the physical, many of the works in the show foreground the material importance of the screen, as a device for communicating lived, bodily experience, and as a site for the sharing of knowledge via the ‘common’ language of images.
