Cut the Mustard
6 Jun 2019 - 22 Jun 2019
University of Leeds BA Fine Art Degree Show 2019
We are delighted to have Simeon Barclay opening the show, with a speech from our very own Griselda Pollock at the private view: 6 June, 6pm-9pm.
56 artists graduating from their final year of the BA Fine Art at the University of Leeds present a range of practices at this year’s Degree Show, finding out whether they can cut the mustard.
In the most uncertain of times, people in power seek to constrict, place borders on what comes and who goes.
In the most uncertain of times, the heat is rising and we can’t be sure where we might be, who will challenge this.
In the most uncertain of times, we face increasing threats to the arts; shifts and shapes we’re still making sense of.
But here together, we know this. This shape: a curve, travelling across space, a squiggle revealed in the brightest yellow.
Take this curve. CUT a line through this; it parts, and here now lies a cross section.
This is it. THE moment.
Like us, you’ve mustered the strength to make it this far. We carry with us the notion to surpass the ketchup, painting this town not red, but a blazing yellow, energized and bright. To strive with civil responsibility; seeking to uplift and engage others.
We’ve enjoyed our time; the fruits of our labour sweet like prized Honey Dijon, now presented for all to see.
Oh yes Leeds, we’ve cut the MUSTARD.
Open daily 7 to 22 June, 10am-5pm
