For the first time in more than a decade, Leeds Art Gallery is showcasing artworks created by artists from across the city in the Leeds Artists Show 2023. The show features drawing, painting, photography, performance, sculpture, textiles, film and video following an open call for submissions.
90 artists were selected to show new and recent work by a panel comprising Derek Horton (writer-curator), Kadish Morris (critic-writer), Hardeep Pandhal (artist) and Isabelle Marklew (performance artist and sculptor) and member of the gallery's Youth Collective, together with Jane Bhoyroo (principal keeper) and Holly Grange (exhibitions curator).
The exhibition introduces the next generation of artists with drawings and paintings by 21 young people from Leeds primary schools.
Leeds Artists Show takes place during LEEDS 2023 Year of Culture.
