Poor Image Projects

Poor Image Projects (PIP) is a nomadic event series showcasing audio-visual and moving image art.
Established in 2018 with artist Bethan Hughes.

The format of PIP events is fluid, shifting between screenings, flash exhibitions, performances and artist talks. In response to the temporary nature of inner-city space and the inherent mobility of AV media, PIP is nomadic, unfolding in various locations across Leeds and beyond.

Events documented by Jules Lister, and graphic design by Jamie Hudson.

PIP has been supported by Lumen Arts, Axis Web, Arts Council England, Leeds Inspired, and the Leeds for Life Foundation. 

PIP has held events as part of Index Festival and Yorkshire Sculpture International, and at The Tetley, Assembly House, Leeds Town Hall, Pavilion, Yorkshire Hub, MAP Charity, University of Leeds, East St Arts’ 34 Boar Lane, The Henry Moore Institute, and BLANK_ University Centre Leeds.
