The Centre for Audio Visual Experimentation (CAVE) presents the latest in this year's programme of exhibitions in our Project Space.

For her first solo exhibition in Leeds, artist and practice-led PhD candidate Eva Frapiccini will propose a series of photographic installations addressing the relationship between the visual and haptic dimension of photography. Frapiccini's work is often represented by archival long-term projects on social and political changes, taking the form of interactive installations where visitors are physically engaged.

The exhibition will host three projects realised after research fieldwork and residency programmes in Cairo (2012), Sicily and central Italy (2018). The exhibition is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm.

Please join us on Wednesday 4 September from 6pm for a private view.

To coincide with the exhibition, a seminar will take place on 16 September focusing on the cultural legacy of crime organisations in Italy and Colombia.

The seminar is organised in partnership with the School of Law and School of Languages, Cultures and Society at the University of Leeds, and is funded by the Leeds Arts and Humanities Research Institute as part of this year’s Sadler Seminar Series.

Full details, including more information about the artist, can be found on the events pages of the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies website.
