About Poor Image Projects
Poor Image Projects (PIP) is an artist-led platform and event series for the collective exploration of audio-visual and moving image art. Each instalment of PIP aims to represent a different artistic perspective on the manifold forms and functions that time-based media, moving image and audio-visual assume.

Technical, tactile, high-definition, analogue, computer generated, sensual, ubiquitous and poor— PIP aims to acknowledge the multiplicity of AV expression and how this materialises in both artistic and everyday contexts.

The format of PIP events is fluid, shifting between screenings, flash-exhibitions, performances and artist talks. Furthermore, in response to the temporary nature of inner-city art spaces and the inherently mobile characteristics of AV media, PIP is nomadic, unfolding in various different locations in and around Leeds.

Poor Image Projects is led by artists Bethan Hughes (practice-led PhD student, University of Leeds) and Anya Stewart-Maggs (BA Fine Art alumna, University of Leeds). It is kindly sponsored by Lumen and supported by Axisweb. Additional thanks go to East Street Arts, The Tetley and Jamie Hudson.
