& M o d e l
&model is a curatorial project established in 2012 by James Chinneck, Chris Bloor and Derek Horton. We have run a continuous exhibition programme (from January 2013 onwards) sometimes working alongside guest curators and showing a diverse range of international artists. We are continuing to use our three-floor 19th century building in central Leeds to develop projects and events that bring contemporary artists and others to work alongside some of the city’s emerging practitioners. Occasional artist residencies complement our exhibition programme. Use of the building is enabled by the Leeds charity RTTA (Regeneration Through The Arts). All our projects, so far involving well over 200 artists are documented in the archive section of our website - http://www.andmodel.com/archive.htm

history of the site:
&Model is located in a three-storey early-19th century building in central Leeds. Originally built as a town house it has had a variety of commercial usage for most of its lifetime before we took it over and converted it into a gallery space across all three floors in 2012, opening in January 2013.
