New Exhibitions at LPW and The Print Room
21st February 2019
Print/Process/Performance, LPW Gallery The New Custodian, LPW Gallery 2 Stephen Lawrence Poster Exhibition, The Print Room at LCB Depot Until 4th May
We’re very happy to bring together three exhibitions that weave together print, process, performance, poetry, play, protest and positivity, with celebration, restoration and activism this Spring.
Print/Process/Performance brings together works by Roy Bizley, Henri Chopin, Philip Corner, Ian Hamilton Finlay and Alison Knowles from the De Montfort University’s Art Collection.
The exhibition title references “intermedia”, a term coined by Fluxus artist Dick Higgins, to describe artwork that falls between media, merges from one medium into another, or resists rigid artistic categorisations. This is a rare opportunity to see this work in a gallery setting, allowing the playful pieces to react with each other, inspiring new ideas and interactions.
We are inviting LPW members to respond to this exhibition, to create new work for our 2019 Members’ Exhibition, which will take place in November. Full Print and Associate Members can take part in LPW Exhibitions, so please get in touch for more information about joining as a member.
In The New Custodian, restoration becomes a process and performance as artist Theo Miller reconditions and rebuilds a 19th century Columbian printing press, donated by Leicester Museums. Visitors will be able to learn more about the heritage and mechanics of the printing press, and, once assembled be able to see the press in action.
At The Print Room, our exhibition space at LCB Depot, we are showcasing work made by a group of talented Graphic Design and Illustration students from DMU who learnt to use letterpress printing techniques to make posters. Their work shares positive messages to celebrate the first Stephen Lawrence Day, which takes place on 22 April 2019. Read more here.
LPW Galleries are open Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 5pm with late night opening until 8pm on Wednesdays, and on the last friday of every month, as part of Cultural Quarter Lates.
The Print Room is our exhibition space at LCB Depot, open Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.30pm. The Print Room is sometimes used for meetings, so please call the LCB Depot on 0116 261 6800 to check availability before making your visit.
