Chair (context and round up): Dr Judith Tucker University of Leeds
Speakers (15-20 mins each):
Paul Digby: Paul will talk about his practice as well as curating, marketing and organising the exhibition, how he selected the artists, approached the Corn Exchange and worked collaboratively.
Howard Eaglestone: Howard will be talking about what painting means to him, particularly the process of painting. He will discuss how he identifies his source material and then how the time and experience involved in making the painting allows the evolution of ideas. He wants the relationship between form and content to be expansive and that the painting becomes catalyst for the imagination of the observer.

This is an exhibition of Leeds based artists who have responded to urban Leeds and the work on display was made before, during and after lockdown.
As the city is imagined, it too imagines us.
As the city is shaped by artists, each artist is formed by the city they live in. Set deep into the imagination of Cuthbert Brodrick, the architect who’s vision still permeates our city, these artists show us that Leeds can still be a city of dreams, just as Leeds is still a city of commerce, and a city of law and a city of love.
There will be a selection of paintings and drawing exhibited with giclee prints of the artists work for sale.
