Sweet Dreams…are made of this

A new exhibition at Village, Leeds, is raising money for a domestic violence charity. Sweet Dreams…are made of this is supporting Behind Closed Doors.

Organised by Lens Think and Village, the exhibition showcases a selection of works from Yorkshire-based artists.

Final images were chosen by Lens Think’s Joanne Coates, guest judge Natasha Caurna and the Village team.

Each of the artists is showing their own representation of love.

Love can be hopeless and nihilistic. It can be a perpetual state of seeking. Love can be a number of things.

An auction of the work on display will raise funds for Leeds-based Behind Closed Doors.
