Online Event

Assembly House is thrilled to present the first digital exhibition of our newly commissioned artworks, as part of our Digital Programme 2020.

We've worked with seven artists; four from open commission calls to create brand-new, digital artworks, in any format, and three artists through our Black Joy Matters print commission.

The exhibition includes:

A dance film, exploring Armley Park and Gott's Park, from dance artist Charlotte Arnold

An archive of poetry, videos and reflections from Black men looking at their experiences of dreams and nightmares during the pandemic, by spoken word artist Abdullah Adekola

A series of model of promient and beloved businesses and buildings in Armley that you can print off at home, decorate and build yourself, by artist and designer Chris Bennigsen

Animations, biographies and family activity packs exploring historical influential women of Leeds by illustrator Megan Dobbyn

Two brand new prints celebrating Black artists Luci Pina and Sondliwe Pamisa, which are available to buy and come with an exclusively commissioned sticker by Kevin Chege, celebrating both his Yorkshire and African hertiage

Take a look at the exhibition here, and keep an eye out for the projects that you can try at home yourself.
