The Gott Bequest
Leeds Libraries Special Collection
“The government of Herbs by the sun, moon, and planets, has been exploded by modern science; and is now regarded by persons of ordinary capacity to be absurd in the extreme”
The Genera Project
Light Night 2015
The Genera Project is a response by Inkwell artists to this collection which will culminate in a spectacular installation for Light Night (October 9th 2015) in Room 700 on the first floor of Leeds Central Library. This is a brand new refurbished room that was formerly the exhibition space so we are really excited to have this opportunity and venue. A further response will be exhibited at Inkwell throughout October – November.
A series of workshops happening over July, August and September has been supported by Leeds Inspired, part of Leeds City Council and will involve the wider community and artists from across Leeds to be able to take part in the process of exploring the possibilities for Light Night.
