Professor Emeritus Lynn Silverman is featured in the "Found Cities, Lost Objects" exhibition at the Leeds Art Gallery in the UK!
From the Gallery:
Explore the urban environment through the eyes of women and gender non-conforming artists in an Arts Council Collection touring exhibition curated by Turner Prize-winning artist and cultural activist Lubaina Himid CBE.
Found Cities, Lost Objects addresses themes ranging from safety and navigation to concepts of belonging and power. It acknowledges the privileges which allow some people to roam freely, while also considering the boundaries that may curb the experiences of others. The works shown encourage you to reflect on your everyday experiences and your relationship with the built environment. How do the buildings, streets and neighbourhoods you inhabit shape you and your life? Can you envision an inclusive city which is welcoming for everyone?
