Attenborough Arts New Gallery Opening

Attenborough Arts, part of The University of Leicester, has a new gallery, and I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph the opening.

The late Richard Attenborough was the founding patron, who handed the patronage to his son Michael. Richard’s brother, Sir David Attenborough formally opened the new gallery.

The new gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary British and international art. The opening exhibition by Lucy + Jorge Orta questions the social and ecological sustainability of our planet. The exhibition is on until 24 April 2016.

Jorge Orta couldn’t make the opening, but Lucy was there to talk about the thinking behind the exhibition.
