The pioneers at Pavilion in discussion on 21 Nov



Cara Tolmie: Wrangling Exercise
Setting up a British first: The Pavilion women’s photography centre
21 November, 6-7.15pm 

To mark its 30th year of operation, Pavilion has invited artist Cara Tolmie to stage an iteration of her ongoing Wrangling Exercise event series.

Three participants – the Chair, Interviewer and Interviewee – will stage a dialogue around Pavilion’s roots as the UK’s first women’s photography centre. The participants will rotate roles throughout the event, with each person taking a turn to direct the conversation, to ask questions and to answer them. The form of the event reflects Pavilion’s early aim to constitute a new democratic structure operated by and for women.

Participants include early members of the collective: Dinah Clark, Sue Ball and Sally Dawson. The location of the event, the former park pavilion on Woodhouse Moor (now Akmal’s Tandoori Bistro), housed Pavilion’s gallery and darkroom from 1983-96.

Tickets: Free
Book online or email
Address: Akmal’s Tandoori Bistro, 235 Woodhouse Lane, Leeds, LS2 3AP
Due to time constraints the event will start promptly at 6pm. Please arrive at 5.45pm.
