Leeds Art Gallery’s new exhibition Shifting Perspectives invites viewers to do exactly that – shift perspectives around (mis)representation and identity via the medium of art, in relation to stereotyping and unequal distribution of global power. Spotlighting artists of African, Caribbean and Asian heritage, viewers will be met with a wide range of voices and styles, and differing perspectives on the issues raised in the show, while revealing the mechanisms of stereotyping.

Produced in collaboration with different Leeds communities, the show features diverse voices, bringing together almost 100 artworks. The works range from the 17th century, to contemporary pieces.

Artists include Karen Babayan, Sumuyya Khaader, Frank Brangwyn, Jacob Epstein, William Hogarth, Yinka Ilori, Jade Montserrat, Ronald Moody, Rembrandt van Rijn, Bob and Roberta Smith and Barbara Walker.
