Feminist Public Sculpture: Celebrating Women’s Ach

Feminist Public Sculpture: Celebrating Women’s Ach


Leeds Arts University’s latest exhibition shows the work of four artists shortlisted to create a new public sculpture to celebrate the achievements of women in the city of Leeds.

The selected artists have developed models of their proposed designs which will be shown in the Blenheim Walk Gallery, alongside examples of work from other cities to highlight the broader context for women's visibility in the public realm across the UK. The exhibition coincides with a major fundraising campaign, which hopes to find support both from the public and corporate sponsors keen to engage with the project.

This exhibition will be the first opportunity to see the proposed designs created by the four shortlisted artists:

Briony Marshall, sculptor and installation artist.
Pippa Hale, Leeds-based contemporary artist.
Wendy Briggs, installation artist working across a variety of media.
Zsófia Jakab, interdisciplinary artist.

Free entry. Booking not required.
