#Five2Watch Artists in Leeds

To celebrate the British Art Show coming to Leeds in October 2015, Christopher Hall has been named in a list of 5 artists to watch by Axisweb, the premier online resource for contemporary art in the UK.


The British Art Show is widely recognised as the most ambitious and influential exhibition of contemporary British art. Organised by Hayward Touring exhibitions, it takes place every five years and tours to four different cities across the UK. Now in its eighth incarnation, the British Art Show will open at Leeds Art Gallery on October 9th (until Jan 10th 2016), after which it tours to Edinburgh, Norwich and Southampton.

The Axisweb #Five2Watch is regularly curated to highlight the work of up and coming contemporary artists in the UK and to coincide with the launch in Leeds the list has been chosen to reflect strength and diversity of work being produced by artists living and working in Leeds today.
