The University of Leeds

Woodhouse Lane, Leeds, LS2 9JT

The University of Leeds has commissioned a public artwork Converse Column by internationally renowned British-American artist Liliane Lijn to mark the new south entrance to the University, adjacent to its new Nexus innovation hub.

To celebrate the launch of the artwork, Lijn will discuss her work, influences and major new commission for the University of Leeds, with Leeds Art Gallery’s Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Nigel Walsh. Lijn works with kinetic text and is a pioneer in the interaction of art, science, technology and language.

The work that she has created for the University is designed to represent communication and to inspire collaboration and innovation with real world impact. It is a nine metre-high revolving column of transforming words, to which staff and students have contributed ideas.

This event is organised by University of Leeds and Yorkshire Sculpture International.
