Who is Leila Galloway?

Leila Galloway is a Senior Lecturer at DMU, School of Fine and Applied Arts (Sculpture). She is a sculptor whom lives and works in London.

Over the last 15 years she has exhibited nationally and internationally, Gasworks, London, Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, Talbot Rice, Edinburgh, Transmission Gallery, Glasgow, Standort Ausstellungshalle, Frankfurt, Northview Gallery, Portland, Oregon, & Lane College, Eugene, Oregon, USA. In 1994 she was in receipt of the Boise Travel Scholarship researching Italian Renaissance Gardens and in 1997 was one of five artists commissioned by Saatchi & Saatchi on behalf of Procter and Gamble for Oil of Ulay to produce a short 1 minute film for ITV in promoting their new colour collection.

In 2004 she organised Tool Versus Medium - which was the first Symposium ever held in the UK that focused on Rapid Prototyping in Contemporary Sculpture? It gave an overview of current practices, debated the impact that Rapid Prototyping has had on Contemporary Sculpture, extended and challenged the conception / reception of the object. It asked the question - Are we in a paradigm shift of the sculptural object?

Arising out of the symposium she was awarded an AHRC, Arts Council Science and Art Research Fellowship to establish Annie Cattrell as a Research Fellow in Fine Art. It explored the implications for both Art and Science, of the application of Rapid Prototyping in creating representations in Contemporary Sculpture from Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

These events arose out of her investigation into establishing an analytical framework that adequately describes and conceptualises the visual experience of the physical (a major project that she started in 1997 by recording conversations by contemporary sculptors - Phyllida Barlow, David Cheeseman, John Issacs, and Elizabeth Rosser Jonathan Callen).
