blip blip blip is a curatorial programme which is committed to examining and fostering relationships between contemporary art practice and art education. Art students are involved in the running of the programme from installing and invigilating shows through to helping artists realise works and curating exhibitions.
blip blip blip pursues a policy of inviting curators or organisations to make group shows that explore a range of relationships to art education. This curatorial strand is designed to help students appreciate the breadth of educational models and opportunities available to them as they progress through art education.
A further curatorial strand, the Doubles Series asks a mid career artist to invite another artist, with whom they have some form of educational and artistic relationship, to make an exhibition with them.
The final curatorial strand, the annual exhibitions ex and Interim, was established in order to reconnect artists, now based in other cities, with each other and with Leeds.
ex was an exhibition selected from BA Fine Art graduates throughout the UK who had previously studied on the Foundation course at Leeds College of Art.
Interim was an exhibition open to penultimate year fine art students currently studying at institutions throughout the UK who had previously studied on the Foundation course at Leeds College of Art. Each exhibition was selected by a leading UK artist and curator.
blip blip blip is directed by artists Sean Kaye and Harry Meadley and was hosted at East Street Arts’ Patrick Studios Project Space, Leeds, UK from 2013–2018. blip blip blip currently produces exhibitions for other gallery programmes and will soon open a new programme at Winzavod Centre for Contemporary Art in Moscow.
