BasementArtsProject is an artist-led initiative, located in a pre-war, mid-terrace house in South Leeds, facilitating and promoting the activities of artists nationally and internationally whilst maintaining a broad and varied programme within the city of Leeds.
Our current activity is based around a frequent series of events taking place throughout the year whilst we seek funding to convert the space into a fully operational studio / residency project / Gallery venue with its own access and facilities.
Exhibitions and events since April 2011 have included solo projects by Kimbal Quist Bumstead, Alisia Casper, Alan Dunn & Martyn Rainford, Luke Drozd, Philip Gurrey, Dominic Hopkinson, Samela OtoviÁ, Unravel: The Longest Hand Painted Film in Britain and Alistair Woods. We have also staged lectures by Canadian Art Historian Allan Antliff and artist Dominic Hopkinson, and a gig by experimental musicians TEN. We have also played host to the group exhibitions ëSPEAKEASY: art in an age of prohibitioní, íOther Roomsí curated by Saturation Point and ëRoadside Museumí curated by Gordon Culshaw and John O Hare.
Alongside this we have taken artists work offsite to events such as the Stockholm Independent Art Fair 2012, Liverpool Biennial 2012 and Divided We Fall, across the rest of Leeds in August 2012, March 2013 and May 2014. In April 2014 BasementArtsProject staged the third of three collaborative exhibitions with international collective SCI under the moniker SCIBase at 3rd on 3rd Gallery and Dykeman Young Galleries in Jamestown, New York.
BasementArtsProject is currently working on a selection of new projects including our second publication for late 2015 and early 2016. The programme continues . . .
