Nous Vous ~ ‘A Watery Line’
18th July – 1st August

The Tetley
Hunslet Road, Leeds,
LS10 1JQ

For two weeks in July, Nous Vous will exhibit drawings, prints, paintings and objects, producing new artwork in on-site open studios and working with a selection of other artists to deliver a programme of performances and workshops. The result of this activity will remain in the space for a further four weeks.

The exhibition/residency will respond to The Tetley’s history following its recent refurbishment; speculating about its future function and investigating the point where art interacts with everyday life through various forms of ‘making’.

With Joe Gilmore

This one-day workshop will explore and investigate the form and function of the book through an axis of self-initiated, practice-based inquiry. Through presentation and discussion, the group will consider books from a variety of positions and viewpoints, looking at the form of the book historically and through current art and design practice in the form of conceptual books, artists’ books, zines.

The aim of the workshop is to create a collaborative publication documenting the research and showcasing the work produced in the workshop. Participants can work alone or in groups using computer, photocopier and a risograph printer.
