Current Exhibitions

Ground For Discussion | Conway and Young

Thursday 27 April – Thursday 22 July

Ground For Discussion documents a series of undeveloped and alternative spaces found within a half-mile radius of Leeds Railway Station - places that stand still in a constantly moving urban environment, that remain in the shadow of a regenerated modern city - blank areas, open areas, pauses in between buildings where overgrown wastelands sit between city centre apartments and ancient footpaths. This work presents passers by with an opportunity to think about the way in which city centre space has been used and about the empty and historically rich spaces that remain.

Ground For Discussion will be presented on a billboard situated in Leeds Railway Station (lower concourse, opposite Subway) The project is accompanied by both a limited edition publication and set of postcards, which will be available from the Leeds Tourist Information Centre in the train station.

Ground For Discussion is the first of four as part of Leeds Met Gallery’s Billboard Project using billboard 7075 at Leeds Railway Station over the coming year.
