Part of Leicester Art Week

Every month our programme brings together artists, designers and makers working in different creative areas. This month we’re focusing on visual art from sculpture to painting and textiles.

The Magic of the Real is an exhibition of artwork that you need to see in person- not only through a screen. The show, curated by No Jobs in the Arts, brings together Nottingham based artist Katharina Fitz with emerging Leicester based artists, and selected new talent from L.O.V.E Art Open call.

Exhibitions and events are online via social media @lcbdepot and in the real world across our exhibition spaces (Lightbox gallery and cafe-bar inside; plus display cases on the building’s Rutland Street front and Courtyard Room exterior; and in the courtyard). Events
