Blip blip blip is a curated program that aims to explore and strengthen the relationship between contemporary art practice and art education. Art students are involved in organizing projects, from idea and familiarization with the exhibition plan, to helping artists in the implementation of works and curatorship of exhibitions. Blip blip blip was founded in Leeds, UK, with three curated areas. The first area aims to explore relationships with art education by invited curators or organizations through group exhibitions. This curated area is designed to help students appreciate the breadth of educational areas. The second area, the Doubles Series, is a middle-aged artist who invites another artist with whom he has some kind of educational and artistic relationship to host an exhibition.

A third curatorial direction, the annual ex and Interim exhibitions, was created to reunite artists now living in different cities in the Leeds exhibition space (Institute of Contemporary Arts, Leeds, UK) in order to reconnect and create a network of mutual support.
