in Holy Trinity Church, Boar Lane, Leeds from 8 – 19 May 2012
7 artists explored the character of retail in Leeds with an innovative photography and new media exhibition hosted by Arts@Trinity at the historic site of Holy Trinity Church, Boar Lane, Leeds. The exhibition immediately preceeded the closure of Holy Trinity Church for redevelopment and the opening of the adjascent Trinity Leeds shopping centre development, thematically linking these two sites. Ranging from documentary to large-format architectural studies, to digitally augmented collages and video testimonials, the photographers developed their work collaboratively and offered an invition to consider the role that retail plays in our life and in the life of Leeds.
