On the heights

An Art Licks residency and current exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park with Miriam Austin, Sam Belinfante, Frances Scott, and Tom Lovelace; curated by Holly Willats.

On the heights was an Art Licks residency and exhibition project delivered in partnership with Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

For the project, Art Licks invited artists Miriam Austin, Sam Belinfante, Tom Lovelace, and Frances Scott to take part in a two-week onsite residency at YSP in April 2017, which was later followed by a group exhibition at YSP's Both Gallery and across various sites in the Park. The project was curated by Art Licks' Director, Holly Willats in partnership with YSP.

On the heights responded to the extraordinary setting of YSP and explored the history and landscape of the area.

The exhibition ran from the 29 October—3 December 2017.
