The students take an Interpretations module in the first term of their course where they work collaboratively with other students to respond to a professional brief. Each group develops, designs, markets and installs an interpretative intervention, such as standalone exhibitions and contributions to existing projects on campus.
This year the range of topics include the feminist peace camps of Greenham Common and Menwith Hill, womens’ health in Victorian Leeds and remembering The Who Live at Leeds, 50 years on.
The exhibitions will be open from 2 to 5pm prior to the launch event. Make your own way around each one or join a free guided tour at 2.00pm or 3.30pm led by one of our student guides. Meet in the entrance to the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies – there is no need to book, just turn up.
From 5 to 7pm, there will be a celebration reception at the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies where there will be refreshments and lightening talks from some of our students past and present. All welcome!
