Poor Image Projects (PIP) is a nomadic event series showcasing audio-visual and moving image art forms. Each instalment of PIP presents a different artistic perspective on the manifold forms and functions of the moving image and audio-visual media. Technical, tactile, high-definition, analogue, computer generated, sensual, ubiquitous and poor— PIP aims to acknowledge the multiplicity of AV expression and how this materialises in both artistic and everyday contexts.

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 across various locations in and around Leeds and further afield. This also serves to bridge the gap between smaller artist-led initiatives and established cultural institutions.

Poor Image Projects is led by artists Bethan Hughes and Anya Stewart-Maggs; it is kindly sponsored by Lumen and supported by Axis Web and the Leeds for Life Foundation. Additional thanks go to Jamie Hudson, Jules ListerEast Street Arts, The Tetley and CAVE.
