&model is the collective curatorial project of James Chinneck, Chris Bloor and Derek Horton, established in 2012, as part of RTTA. Sometimes inviting guest curators, we show a diverse range of contemporary art, bringing established and international artists to Leeds and working with some of the city’s emerging practitioners.
Our gallery space at 19 East Parade presented an ambitious programme of exhibitions and residencies from January 2013 to June 2017.
From 2017 onwards, workshop/studio space in Kestrel House in Lower Brunswick Street, Leeds, is the base for a year-round programme of artist residency opportunities. These will provide short, medium and long term residencies with participants selected on a rolling basis. They are primarily aimed at emerging artists and design practitioners and will provide test spaces for individual, collective and collaborative projects. Exhibition opportunities throughout the duration of the residencies may be negotiated and mentoring mechanisms will be in place to support the chosen residents.
Our exhibition programme will continue at other venues in Leeds.
&model is an RTTA project.
