See outer space through a different lens.
We have had a long lasting fascination with outer space: from ancient civilisations who saw stories in the stars, to modern day technology bringing us closer than ever to the cosmos.

This exhibition shines a light on contemporary artists who use and challenge the newest technologies for space imaging in their art practice.

Modern science today gives us spectacular astronomical images. However, have these eclipsed the human imagination, which in the past led to tales of gods, monsters and more?

The artists in this exhibition bring the human sense of wonder back into sharp focus – blurring the line between fact and fiction.

Discover new contemporary artists, and ask yourself: what do you see when looking at the stars?

Exhibiting artists include Stella Baraklianou, Vija Celmins, Zachary Eastwood-Bloom, Hondartza Fraga, Lia Halloran, Mishka Henner, Julie F. Hill, Risa Horowitz, Melanie King, Katie Paterson, Mark Lascelles-Thornton, Paul Magee and Thomas Ruff.

This exhibition is guest curated by Hondartza Fraga, a visual artist living in Leeds. She is currently studying a Practice-led PhD at the School of Design at the University of Leeds with an award from the White Rose College of the Arts & Humanities.
