Spirograph inventor inspires end of year Art & Design show
The event, titled ‘The Mother of Invention’, is themed around the city of Leeds and its legacy of creativity and invention. The exhibition takes inspiration from the classic ‘Spirograph’ toy, the creation of Leeds inventor Denys Fisher, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Symbols developed from spirograph patterns will help visitors navigate the building.
The exhibition will include the works of both undergraduate and postgraduate students of subjects including Landscape Architecture, Architecture, Product Design, Fine Art, Interior Architecture, Graphic Arts and Graphic Design. It will also feature work from the first intake of students on the University’s new BA Fashion, which launched in September 2014. The event will open officially at 18:00 on Friday 5 June at the University’s Broadcasting Place on Woodhouse Lane, Leeds.
Dr Rebekka Kill, Head of School of Art, Architecture and Design, explained:
“We are extremely proud of all the hard work our students have put in this year. This show is a real celebration of their achievements, both creative and academic. It’s the biggest event on our calendar, and every year the opening night is packed out with friends, family, alumni and regional arts and business people; everyone is welcome.”
The show will be open to the public from 10:00 – 16:00 from Saturday 6 until Friday 12 June.
