These eye-opening designs are set to take pride of place at the British Art Show 8 in Leeds later this year.


British Art Show 8, which is organised every five years, will open to the public at Leeds Art Gallery in October before heading around the country.

Leeds Art Gallery will de-install almost their entire collection allowing the curators to reinvent the space.

The exhibition, curated by Anna Colin and Lydia Yee, will contain Linder Sterling’s new textile rug, Diagrams of Love: Marriage of Eyes, along with work from 42 artists.

Anna Colin and Lydia Yee said: “A key area that emerged from our conversations with artists, and which came to form British Art Show 8’s broad thematic premise, involves new thinking around materiality at a time of increasing convergence between the real and virtual spheres.”
