Beth Shapeero: The Shape of Things
Exhibitions

Event organiser:
The Tetley

In collaboration with learners from Leeds City College, artist Beth Shapeero presents a new immersive installation developed during a recent residency and participation project.

The work explores abstract gestures drawn from the shapes in our everyday surroundings.

During workshops at The Tetley, site visits and unstructured social time with the students, Shapeero will introduce repetitive and meditative processes to encourage her collaborators to make quickly and lose caution. Using predominantly painting and printmaking, the group will produce an abundance of tiny and large-scale works, which use rhythm and pace to explore dynamic form and colours. Shapeero aims to make space for bold work to emerge by encouraging an un-selfconscious approach to creating.

As both exhibition and participatory project The Shape of Things introduces therapeutic creative processes as a toolkit or set of instructions for slowing down, seeing the world around us and making to support our mental health and wellbeing needs.
