THE
ONE-OFFS
PROJECT

a one-off is an exhibition that exists for one night only.

the one-offs project was a programme of exhibitions instigated by the artists ISAAC CLARKE, ELINOR CANTRILL, BENJAMIN SLINGER, INGRAM ROEDER and JOSEPH BUCKLEY during their shared tenancy of a disused textiles factory in the Holbeck area of Leeds in the summer of 2010. their curatorial programme culminated in the group show 'NOT REALLY HERE NOT REALLY THERE' which existed with a week long rundex.

upon their departure from Leeds, the curatorship of the space was given to the artist SIMEON BARCLAY. SIMEON BARCLAY's curatorial programme was three months long and also culminated in a group show built around the core concerns of his practice. the programme was specifically designed to mirror the original programme curated by the artists ISAAC CLARKE, ELINOR CANTRILL, BENJAMIN SLINGER, INGRAM ROEDER and JOSEPH BUCKLEY.

after SIMEON BARCLAY the curatorship of the space was then handed to the artist DAVID STEANS. DAVID STEANS' programme was designed to follow the original template laid down by the artists ISAAC CLARKE, ELINOR CANTRILL, BENJAMIN SLINGER, INGRAM ROEDER and JOSEPH BUCKLEY but was interrupted and ended along with the one-offs project as a whole due to disputes with the landlord of the disused textiles factory. DAVID STEANS' curatorial programme manifested itself as two single one-offs only, by the artist's MATT CRAWLEY and HAROLD OFFEH respectively.
