Seven toilets are to become สล็อตออนไลน์ the unusual setting for a new European-wide art festival.


The Leicester lavatories - all accessible to members of the public - are due to host the show called Accessible Art For All.

Leicester will be the first of five cities to host the exhibition, with others including Rome, Hamburg and Sofia.

Organisers said they hoped to "start a trend of artwork in toilets".

Artists due to exhibit in the unusual location include Richard DeDomenici, who has exhibited work at the Tate Gallery and the British Museum.

He said: "This is a great place to put art in because I think that art is at its most powerful when it's experienced non-art audiences."

Mr DeDomenici work's, called Cubicle Your Fears, is inspired by his previous work that featured in the Tate Modern and British Museum, where two strangers would go into a shed and talk about their fears.

Some of those fears now feature on the walls of a toilet cubicle.

He added: "We're inviting people to contribute their own fears. People can write their own fears on the wall and become part of the artwork.

"I'm hoping by sharing our fears we can, in some way, transcend them."

Beth Piggott, from Artreach, an arts development organisation, said it was the weirdest exhibition she had ever organised.
