PANIC! - Artist's Network in the Crisis
Open call for Artists to join PANIC! steering group

As part of the Holberg Prize, Griselda Pollock (CentreCATH and A Feminist Space in Leeds) has partnered with The Tetley to establish a network for artists in the Leeds city region in order to address the new conditions which face artists as an effect of the current crisis.

We are inviting expressions of interest from emerging artists to join the Panic steering group. Six artists will be selected to join the committee. Together with two invited advisors, Griselda Pollock and Bryony Bond, Director of The Tetley, the steering group will help steer the activity of the network, direct funds and help select projects to realise.

Here, There and Everywhere: Residency and Exhibition at The Tetley, Leeds.
Africa/UK: Transforming Art Ecologies

Here, There and Everywhere: Residency and Exhibition is a one month residency followed by a solo exhibition at The Tetley. The selected artist will work in partnership with the Nigerian and West African community based in Leeds. The selected artist will be announced soon.


Our exhibitions are programmed in house and are scheduled at least one year in advance. We focus primarily on solo exhibitions of artists based in Britain and internationally, or work with guest curators on group shows and often show  displays from collections and archives revealing hidden histories alongside contemporary work. The selection of artists is undertaken by the programme team, led by the Artistic Director.The Tetley often works in partnership with other organisations in Britain and abroad, with current collaborations with Karachi Biennale, Pakistan, Colombo Art Biennale, Sri Lanka and Liverpool Biennial through the New North and South partnership. As exhibitions arise from direct invitations and through partnerships, we do not accept unsolicited proposals for exhibitions and do not hire out spaces for exhibitions.
