The future of art

Here's your chance to see the future of art at Leeds' final year student shows.

Final year shows give members of the public a chance to see what Leeds' students have been up to and to discover art from some of the country's leading new talents.

25 degrees is a collaborative exhibition of this years graduating fine art students from the University of Leeds. The event will showcase work across a wide range of visual media, including photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, video, film,  sculpture and installation.

Visitors to the exhibition, taking place at Whitehall Waterfront, will be able to see a number of eclectic pieces including a real live Greek grandmother all the way from Athens. She will be living in the gallery and cooking traditional Greek food. Visitors can even get their photo taken with her and the image will be printed directly on a postcard to take away.

In another project, Leeds' vibrant club culture will be represented through large-scale photographic prints along with dynamic lighting, to make the viewer feel like it is still Saturday night.

25°, Fine Art Degree Show 2006 School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies, University of Leeds. Thursday 1 - Wednesday 7 June 2006, Whitehall Waterfront, 2 Riverside Way, Whitehall Rd, Leeds.
