The Grand Arcade, Leeds

1/5/13 - 14/5/13


Taking over a former nightclub in the heart of the city, SEIZE: The Grand Arcade was the first show to come from the Leeds-based art collective.

SEIZE sourced 6-9, The Grand Arcade, formerly known as ‘The Atrium’. Boasting original features including raised platforms, DJ booths, a basement and suspect paintwork, the space was a unique location for a pop-up exhibition, brought to life by the eclectic nature of the artists' work. Addressing a multitude of ideas, materials and processes, each artist discovered what it means to re-purpose such a site for different ends, exploring both the disparities and parallels between the social contexts of the gallery and the nightclub.
