Temple Works (Holbeck) to go out with a bang

If you haven’t already heard, put August 27 – September 7 in your diaries for the Temple Works Legacy Exhibition, at the Leeds Central Library (Room 700, the Art Space).

temple works 2The week-long exhibition will especially feature a public launch, open to all, between 4pm-7pm on Tuesday August 30 (though sadly no naked drummers will be present).

The exhibition has sprung out of the fast-moving events of February this year, which saw the TW collective move out of the iconic mill on Marshall Street – but their work, individually and collectively, continues.

Susan Williamson, director of the TWL project, comments;

“We want to invite the public to come to relive some of our finer and more dangerous moments, and see old and new work: from audio and photographic site explorations, to still and moving images of events, short films made on site, archived web material, props and ( as a giveaway to the first lucky few hundred) a hand-tied memorial booklet.”

All are welcome at the exhibition, so please spread the word. And if people are available to help with stewarding, please get in touch with them.
