After Malevich 9&10, 2012 © Tess Jaray

Landscapes of Space is the first major exhibition, since that at the Serpentine Gallery in 1988, devoted to the paintings and prints of Tess Jaray, and includes work from the early 1960s to the present day.

Tess Jaray in front of her mural for Expo 67, Montreal, 1967 Colour photograph (detail) by Jorge Lewinski (1921-2008) / Private Collection / The Bridgeman Art Library

Landscapes of Space Paintings and Prints by Tess Jaray Friday 21 February – Sunday 27 April Djanogly Art Gallery Admission free

After leaving the Slade, Jaray was awarded a travelling scholarship in 1960 that enabled her to study first-hand the art and architecture of the Italian Renaissance and Baroque. Seeing the frescoes of artists such as Giotto and Piero della Francesca in their original settings proved an overwhelming experience and was pivotal in laying the path she was to follow for the next 50 years. She was captivated by the emotional impact of the architecture she encountered and came to the realization that space itself could be the subject of painting. Thereafter, her works were to be characterized by a rigorous structural design coupled with carefully considered colour combinations that create affecting spatial ambiguities. A quest for the simplest and most expressive form has gone hand-in-hand with an obsession with the purity and power of colour.

Since 1985 an increasing amount of the artist’s time has been devoted to major commissions in which she has been able to apply her understanding of space and pattern to large-scale projects in public places such as the Centenary Square, Birmingham, and the forecourt of the new British Embassy in Moscow. In 2013, a new floor designed by Jaray was installed in the transepts and nave of St Mary’s Church, Nottingham, and documentary photographs of this exciting new artwork in the city will be displayed alongside the exhibition in the Angear Visitor Centre. The exhibition coincides with the publication of the first monograph on the artist published by Ridinghouse and Djanogly Art Gallery with texts and interviews by Richard Davey, John Stezaker, Alison Wilding, and Alister Warman.

Lecture Djanogly Art Gallery Lecture Theatre Admission Free Thursday 20 February 6.30 - 7.30pm Followed by Preview Richard Davey (Co-ordinating Chaplain Nottingham Trent University and Visiting Fellow in the School of Art and Design) will introduce the work of Tess Jaray in conversation with the artist.

Since the 1990s, Nottingham-born artist, Permindar Kaur, has created sculptural objects and installations that explore the territory of cultural identity, home and belonging. She does this by apparently innocent means invoking childhood and domestic spaces.

hide-and-seek perhaps, or a strategy of camouflage or self-negation? Adaption, mimicry and mirroring: strategies of integration and assimilation. In another group of works, doorways deliberately screened or blocked negate the idea of welcome or the homely.

Little figures and animals fashioned in soft fleece resembling half-stuffed toys are the players in her game. However, these are far from sentimental trophies; the comfort of fabric is checked by the cold contours of copper and steel. Her toys are armed with claws, horns and beaks, belying their apparent vulnerability and giving them an air of comic menace. Others disappear against identically coloured or patterned backgrounds; an elaborate game of

This is the first major exhibition of new work produced over the last 10 years by an artist whose concerns with cultural inclusivity and exclusivity remain as pertinent as ever.

Lakeside’s Gallery Art Groups not only provide young people with the opportunity to take part in weekly workshops and engage with the exciting art on show, but also to create their own exhibitions. Members of all three Gallery Art Groups have been inspired by the abstract art in the Pop Art to Britart exhibition (eg Bridget Riley, Damien Hirst), and Tess Jaray’s exhibition, Landscapes of Space. Every week they have created visual responses for their annual show in the Wallner Gallery, developing their own creative ideas in colour and shape whilst exploring surface and scale to produce prints, drawings and paintings. An auction of their work will be held on Saturday 12 July. Please contact Ruth Lewis-Jones for more details: by email on ruth.lewis-jones@nottingham.ac.uk or by phone on 0115 8232218.

These talks allow professional archaeologists, related specialists and community groups to share their exciting work with us as it is happening and include local, regional, national and international projects.

Anglo-Saxon and Viking-Age Societies in the Trent Valley, c. AD 400-1066.

War and diplomacy on Rome's northern frontier

Wednesday 9 April This lecture will examine the archaeological evidence for the nature of Anglo-Saxon and Viking-Age societies in the valley of the River Trent and its adjacent region, between the fifth and mid eleventh centuries. Key themes discussed will be the formation of the different societies that we call ‘Anglo-Saxon’ in the region; settlements, landscapes and lifestyles within the Kingdom of Mercia; the role of the Trent as a communication corridor for contacts and trade; the impact of the Viking Age; and the development of the towns and shires of the Trent valley in the tenth and eleventh centuries AD. Dr Chris Loveluck, Department of Archaeology at The University of Nottingham After the talk there will be the opportunity to handle and find out about Saxon artefacts from the Museum collections.

Wednesday 14 May There was a long and tangled relationship between Romans and locals on Britain's northern frontier - and both sides were changed radically by the experience. For a long time, Roman historical sources and Roman military archaeology were the main pieces of evidence used. In recent years, however, archaeology has given voice to the local side of the story. This talk will use the latest perspectives from archaeology to rewrite history, telling tales from the edge of the empire which are complex, intricate and fascinating. Dr Fraser Hunter, Principle Curator of Iron Age and Roman Collections at the National Museum of Scotland Following the talk there will also be an opportunity to look at Roman artefacts from the collections of The University of Nottingham Museum. ALL TALKS ARE AT 1PM IN THE DJANOGLY THEATRE (PLEASE BOOK YOUR PLACE IN ADVANCE AT THE BOX OFFICE ON 0115 846 7777) Image acknowledgements: A late 8th to early 9th century gilded silver disc brooch from Flixborough in Lincolnshire.

Chekhov is probably the most widely staged foreign dramatist in other cultures after Shakespeare. The British have a rich tradition of Chekhov performance from the beginning of the 20th century to the present day. Exploring the theatre programmes, flyers and posters relating to Chekhov productions which can be found in the historic collections at The University of Nottingham, gives deep insight into British domestication of this foreign classic. These materials begin to explain why this translated playwright seems so close to the British psyche and theatre-going public. The images used here are examples of British marketing for Chekhov plays.

Examining theatre ephemera shows how much the programme, in particular, has changed its function from being simple production information to providing cultural and historical contexts. It also shows how the marketing of Chekhov has responded to the changing perceptions of Russia in the theatre-going world and so, arguably, in society itself. This exhibition has been jointly curated by Cynthia Marsh (Emeritus Professor of Russian Drama and Literature) and Manuscripts and Special Collections at The University of Nottingham.

Tuesday 8 April From Bathos to Pathos: How the British fell in love with Chekhov and his plays Rosamund Bartlett is a biographer and translator of Chekhov, Visiting Professor, Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance, and Founding Director of The Anton Chekhov Foundation. On the basis of her research expertise and knowledge of the plays she illustrates British affinity to Chekhov.

Tuesday 20 May Cigarettes, Soldiers, Sailors and the British Home Front: the war and the tobacco industry One of the abiding images of the First World War is of soldiers smoking in the trenches of the Western Front. The images could also be of soldiers in Gallipoli or Mesopotamia, or of sailors on watch. Although German U-boats hit hard imports to Britain, tobacco was imported and processed to maintain morale. Soldiers and sailors received Christmas tins of tobacco from the state, and on the Home Front people sent tobacco, cigarettes and even cigars to their loved ones in the armed forces. Emeritus Professor Chris Wrigley looks at the ubiquitous presence of tobacco during the war and its impact on the tobacco industry.

All Quiet in the Weston Gallery - the First World War in The University of Nottingham’s Historic Collections Friday 9 May 2014 – Sunday 17 August 2014 Weston Gallery Exhibitions Manuscripts and Special Collections Admission Free

2014 sees the 100 year anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. This exhibition looks at the war through the eyes of the people who experienced it - from the soldier on the battlefield to the worker in the munitions factory, from the volunteer nurse to the wife and mother, and from the British ‘Tommy’ to the German ‘Fritz’.

The First World War was a ‘total war’ in which all available people and resources were geared towards the war effort. This exhibition explores the effects of the events of 1914-1918 on ordinary people caught up in events beyond their control, looking at its impact on business, student life, literature and the place of women in society. Contemporary attitudes to the conflict are also examined, from the widespread propaganda of recruitment images to post-war efforts to memorialise the dead.

The display draws on The University of Nottingham’s historic archival and library collections. It tells the personal stories of those who participated, using a wide range of material, from postcards and letters sent back from the front line to the patriotic games played by British children. The impact of the war on the University is explored, showing how it dealt with the departure of almost all of its male students and many of its teachers to the front line. The exhibition will also include the stories of three families who all sent at least three sons to fight, with very different outcomes. The display then widens out to reflect the truly global nature of the war with material ranging from the papers of a quartermaster in the American Expeditionary Force to the letters of a Austrian soldier in a Russian Prisoner of War Camp. This exhibition has been curated by Manuscripts and Special Collections at The University of Nottingham.

Wednesday 25 June 'Why I changed my name and did my duty' - one family's experience of WW1 Everybody has heard of the futile slaughter on the Somme, at Verdun, Passchendaele and Ypres, the trenches, 'shell shock' and the 1914 Christmas truce. But what made men volunteer, why did they go on fighting, how was morale maintained in such appalling conditions? Emeritus Professor Malcolm Jones looks at how the experience of individual soldiers could vary immensely, as illustrated by the stories of the three Vince brothers and their families. Thursday 24 July The First World War: a test of manhood or the collapse of humanity? This lecture given by Professor Roger Woods of the German department will look at how German autobiographical accounts written in the Weimar years by nationalists, communists, pacifists, and deserters cut across this divide to reveal surprisingly similar mentalities.

Monday’s Child

The Showstoppers Improvised Musical

By Award-winning playwright Brendan Murray (Best Children’s Play 2012)

Spontaneous musical comedy at its finest! A brand new musical comedy is created from scratch at each performance of this award-winning show. Audience suggestions are transformed on the spot into an all-singing, alldancing production with unpredictable and hilarious results.

Great Gran can’t remember, but she does remember to visit Tuesday Wild every week and they play together until bedtime. They love to sing and dress up and are often oblivious to the challenges that the real world throws at them.

This incredible comedy troupe never fail to impress as they create shows packed with drama, dazzling dance routines and catchy melodies, leaving delighted audiences singing all the way home.

At just five years old, Tuesday delights in discovering her world. She revels in the days spent with her Great Gran and loves learning new things – how to count, the different colours and her alphabet.

The show has played sell-out seasons in London’s West End, and has been a must-see staple of the Edinburgh Fringe for six years, as well as entertaining audiences on tour around the world. Recently the group recorded their first BBC Radio Four series to great acclaim.

With live music and dance, this imaginative and funny story explores how we learn, grow old and cope with new challenges.

Taking the inimitable Glen Gould recording of Goldberg Variations by Johan Sebastian Bach as their inspiration, Artistic Director Hélène Blackburn and collaborator Pierre Lecours have created a playful, funny and cleverly quirky dance piece.

These are terrific dancers who perform with amazing energy against fabulous lighting design. A definite treat!

Re-scheduled from February. Raging storms and supernatural forces prevail over one man’s almighty quest to get home. The story of Odysseus’ long journey through the high seas, and his frequent encounters with danger are brilliantly illustrated using extraordinarily simple but hugely skilful drawings and projection, accompanied throughout by a live soundscore on instruments including percussion, keyboards and violin. Co-produced with Battersea Arts Centre, this feature length adaptation of Homer’s cornerstone of literature has rightly won plaudits from critics and public alike. A multitude of meticulous illustrations … The level of detail in Rawling’s drawings is beautiful. What’s equally impressive is how cinematically they’re presented to us, and in such simple yet ingeniously effective means. The Times

WHAT A LOVELY WAR

By Theatre Workshop, Charles Chilton, Gerry Raffles and Members of the Original Cast Directed by Martin Berry Title Suggested by Ted Allan

IT’S 1914 AND EUROPE IS ON THE BRINK OF WAR. YOUR KING AND COUNTRY NEED YOU, SO BE A MAN AND ENLIST TODAY! Oh What A Lovely War takes the ideas of satire and ensemble musical to a whole new level inviting the audience to consider the horror and pointlessness of war by presenting a funny, lyrical evocation of the first world war and making them laugh at the pointlessness of it all. This production, directed by Martin Berry (Lysistrata, Sweeney Todd, Little Shop of Horrors) will tell the story of one of the defining events of the twentieth century through songs, audience interaction, game playing and laughter, as a cast of all ages open up a toybox of images, musical instruments, costumes and props to create scenes of the trenches, the seaside, a forest, battlefields and much more. Part circus, part seaside entertainment, part music hall - Oh What A Lovely War is a riot of colour and music, brilliantly comic and deeply moving.
