David McLeavy – Cha.let Residency

  • In partnership with Lionel Dobie Project

Friday 09 August 2013
7-9 pm (Closing Event)

The Manchester based Lionel Dobie Project Cha.let hosts a series of quick-fire research residencies which sit alongside their overall programme of six month curatorial residencies and accompanying ongoing projects. Bloc Projects have hosted the Cha.let in our courtyard throughout July and invited Sheffield based artist David McLeavy to undertake a research project in the space.

David has focused on developing his understanding of intersecting social, performative and curatorial practices in a project which draws from his long term interest in Le Tour de France as a participatory sporting and cultural phenomenon. David will talk informally about his project with visitors, and has produced a two colour Risograph print for the event which is available for purchase for £35, please see our Bloc Shop.

His solo exhibitions include Villa, South Square Gallery, Bradford, 2013; The Result Of A Concrete Apple, Supercollider, Blackpool, 2012 and Calculated Incidents, Red Gallery Of Contemporary Art, Hull. Group exhibitions include Open Plan Living, CUSP, Leicester, 2012. David lives and works in Sheffield.
