Many Interpretations: launch of exhibitions by MA students

Join us to celebrate this year’s MA students’ interpretive projects at the University of Leeds.

The projects are taking place in collaboration with on-campus galleries and archives based at the University of Leeds, including:

Exhibitions curated by our MA Art Gallery and Museum Studies, MA Arts Management and Heritage Studies and MA Curating Science students will be showcased in gallery spaces across campus.

Two further projects will be displayed in the exhibition spaces of the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies.

This year the topics range from the history and legacy of the Race Relations act in Britain, the presence of women in science and engineering, and the University’s unique collection of magic lanterns.

The exhibitions will be open from 2 to 5pm for the launch event. Make your own way around the exhibitions or join a free guided tour at 2pm or 3pm led by one of our student guides (see booking information below). Meet in the entrance to the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies. You are also welcome to visit any of the exhibitions on campus across the afternoon.

From 5 to 7pm, there will be a celebration reception at the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies where there will be refreshments and lightening talks from some of our students past and present. To help us manage numbers for the refreshments at the evening reception, please RSVP by booking your place via Eventbrite (see booking information below).
