195 Miles

A collaborative project between PSL (Leeds) and the Whitechapel Art Gallery (London) featuring Nick Cass and Lizzie Hughes / Dave Ronalds and Matt & Ross / Noah Sherwood and Janis Rafailidou / Amy Stephens and Rory Macbeth

There are 195 miles between London and Leeds. This project creates a bridge between two cities, two spaces and eight artists. For 195 Miles, PSL and the Whitechapel Gallery have invited four artists from Leeds to engage in a dialogue with four artists from East London culminating in four collaborative works of art conceived and presented for PSL.

Conversations commenced in November 2008 and continue at the projectís launch on 13 December when each of the collaborations begin to take shape on site. Beth Chaplin from the Whitechapel Gallery joins the three PSL Directors in curating the project.

The artists have three months to engage with the space at PSL, and bring their projects to a conclusion by the end of February 2009. The outcome of these blind dates is unpredictable but central to PSLís role as an artistsí laboratory.
