Of Eight Pieces
Friday 18 May, 7-9pm
at Holy Trinity Church, Boar Lane, Leeds city centre
Free entry with refreshments, donations welcomed
Please join us this Friday evening, 18 May for a one-off evening of acoustic performance, video and sound running parallel with the current exhibition at PSL 'Pieces of Eight' including work by artists from the show; Sam Belinfante, Andy Abbott and Ian Balch alongside a selection of Leeds-based artists.
The evening will explore the way in which artists use musical forms and languages in both the formation of their work and its exhibition. As a literal reformulation of the exhibition 'Pieces of Eight' the event will be built around a series of live elements that will constitute a kind of concert; individual 'movements' that will amass to form a live iteration of the group show. All of these elements together will all be offered as musical moments - temporal fragments that orbit the practises of the artists involved.
*'Pieces of Eight' Exhibition at PSL will be until 6.15pm when you are invited to walk through town with PSL guides to Holy Trinity.
Curated by Sam Belinfante in collaboration with the artists.
