INF23 by Michael Shaw is a huge, site-specific inflatable sculpture that will weave its way through our beautiful space, filling chasms and coiling around pillars to highlight its unique features. The installation is over four metres high in places and truly needs to be seen to be believed. As well as encouraging playful exploration of our awesome Grade II* listed space, this neon-striped, organic form offers an incredible photo opportunity.

The installation is accompanied by a number of brass sculptures dotted around the space, which will mimic elements of the building’s architecture. Connect to the playful nature of the work by creating your own brass relief rubbings, which can be displayed as part of a collaborative artwork or can be taken away at your discretion.

INF23 is on show 2-28 September (10am-5pm) and coincides with the Heritage Open Days festival. We’re hosting an opening event on 1 September (5-7pm) where you can take some time to experience the sheer scale of the work, meet the artist and enjoy a complimentary glass of wine.

To give this incredible installation a fitting farewell, we’re also hosting a closing party on 28 September, with drinks, a DJ and artistic responses to the work.

The event is accessible and we have a small number of disabled parking spaces at the front of the building. There is a raised section inside the venue that is not accessible for wheelchair users but the rest of the space is. Unfortunately, we don’t have disabled toilets on site but there is one available next door at The Cardigan Centre.

We’re hosting an accessible day on Tuesday 10 September, where we’ll be ready to meet and greet any community groups that would like to come into the space together and show them around. If you’d like to come along to this with your group, please contact

All money raised through this event supports Left Bank Leeds Charitable Trust, charity no. 1146734.

Please note, we take photos at our events for marketing purposes. If you would prefer not to appear in our images, please speak to a member of staff at the event.
