Gallery visit to Leeds - &Model

My gallery visit to Leeds began at &Model gallery, where I had arranged to meet artist Toby Lloyd, who, along with Andrew Wilson has a residency at &Model during the current 'Project Radio' exhibition at the gallery.

Project Radio is an exhibition space and online radio broadcast created by artists Marion Harrison and Sophie Mallett. The programme is dedicated to the political and collaborative potential of sound art and radio.

Hosted by &Model, Project Radio coincides with the British Art Show 8 opening in Leeds and offers up a shared space for artists and public to make radio. Artist residencies run alongside live broadcasts, interviews and workshops.

The gallery is open 12-5 Wednesday - Sunday, and at times there are events and live broadcasts taking place that are open to the public.

Broadcasts are live Wed to Sun 2-5pm in the gallery and online. They can be listened back at

For their residency at &Model, Toby and Andrew have built a bar in the room adjacent to where the live broadcasts happen.

'Borrowing heavily from the socially conducive architecture of the public house, this environment will encourage alternative conversation modes to blur the customary roles of artist and audience, guest and host, whilst simultaneously presenting and creating materials for broadcast.'
