Two Queens is an artist-run gallery and studios situated in Leicester’s Cultural Quarter. With the ambition of providing a centre for experimental modes of arts production, exhibition and exchange, Two Queens is dedicated to establishing an agenda for new activity in the city and across the region.

We want to invest our energies into collaborations with new institutions and individuals from outside of Leicester whilst also assisting in the development of artists working within the city.

Two Queens was established in 2011 by recent graduates from De Montfort and Loughborough Universities, and has been programming regular exhibitions and events since March 2012.

Two Queens is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee.

In 2019 we made a radio programme for Art Licks Radio, originally broadcast via RTM.fm. The programme responds to the art licks weekend theme of ‘Interdependence’ by interviewing our studio holders and associate members about the role that the building Two Queens plays in facilitating a community.
