Review of The Strata of Things by Uthra Rajgopal

Threshold is an artist-led space for sculpture, located in the front garden of a traditional back-to-back house in Burley, Leeds.


Threshold is a new artist-led space for exhibitions of sculpture in Leeds.

Located in the front garden of a traditional back-to-back house in Burley, exhibitions are open for all to view. You might encounter the space on your daily walk, or way to work or school. Threshold is about experiencing sculpture in everyday situations.

Set up by Leeds based artist Julia McKinlay, the space will exhibit the work of artists based in Yorkshire and further afield, providing a space to experiment with sculpture outside.

Four exhibitions will be happening at Threshold in 2021. 

Booking is not necessary to see the exhibitions, please feel free to enter the garden to view the exhibition.

Exhibitions are usually open daily, 10am - 6pm.
