Welcome As this brochure goes to print, we’re thrilled to be opening our newly expanded Gallery spaces next to the existing Djanogly Art Gallery and Angear Visitor Centre. There’s an information and retail point together with new exhibition space for contemporary art in the Angear Visitor Centre, a dedicated Learning Studio towards the back of the Gallery Cafe, and a fabulous new Gallery adjoining the Djanogly Art Gallery. There could be no better way to introduce these new spaces than through the flagship Lowry exhibition, which celebrates 130 years of excellence at the University of Nottingham. The exhibition is supported by Sir Harry and Lady Djanogly, and organised in association with the Crane Kalman Gallery, London. Although Lakeside is a mere 10 years old this year in comparison to the 130 years of the University, we aim to continue to demonstrate the same commitment to excellence through our programme. It’s impossible to do justice here to the diversity and quality of programme that are included in this birthday year, but we have selected some extraordinary artists – local, national and international - across all areas of performing and visual arts, and we hope that you will find much to enjoy through the course of this year.

Impact: The Nottingham Campaign is The University of Nottingham’s appeal which will deliver the University’s vision to change lives, tackle global issues and shape the future across five strategic themes. The Nottingham Experience

Cultivating a stimulating and supportive environment provides the foundation for studying, working and succeeding and creates a positive sense of belonging. The Campaign will preserve and expand this legacy for future generations of students and staff.

Health and Well-being

Building on its heritage and role in the development of MRI, the Campaign will progress major and diverse research programmes to embed research evidence into clinical practice and significantly improve health and quality of life for patients and carers.

Nurturing Talent

The Campaign will support the brightest and most promising school children, undergraduates, and postgraduates to realise their full potential regardless of their socio-economic background.

Ingenuity

Currently 90% of our research is rated as being of ‘international standard’. The Campaign will build upon our strengths and support research priorities that tackle global issues such as how to produce medicines with minimal impact on the environment, and aiding better and more cost effective patient care.

Sustainable Futures

The Campaign will advance state of the art technologies to mitigate global warming along with sustainable agricultural systems to produce more food from the same amount of land with less fertilisers, water and energy to meet the demands of a growing global population.

Do something inspirational today. Make a gift and have a lasting impact on tomorrow. www.nottingham.ac.uk/impactcampaign Campaign Office t: +44 (0)115 846 7213 e: impactcampaign@nottingham.ac.uk

Wednesday 16 November 2011 - Sunday 5 February 2012 Djanogly Art Gallery admission free

Lowry ls lowry Supper Bar 1922 (private collection) © the estate of l.s. lowry, 2011

l s lowry occupies a unique position in 20th-century british art; by the end of his life, his instantly recognisable street scenes and industrial landscapes had achieved an unrivalled popularity in the public imagination. his posthumous exhibition held at the royal academy in 1976 attracted record numbers of visitors and today the demand for his works at auction continues with apparently no sign of abating. yet, despite this popular success, the idiosyncrasy of lowry’s vision has meant that his contribution to the story of modern art in this country is still a contested issue.

this exhibition focuses on lowry’s work from the beginning of the 20s to the immediate post-war period, from his early forays into the industrial scene to the point at which he began to achieve a degree of commercial success and his interests shifted into the territory of figure painting. in the 1930s, personal crisis brought about by the death of his parents, and the artist’s growing sense of isolation, produced a kind of artistic derailment resulting in an extraordinary body of work whose subject matter chimes with the national zeitgeist of pre-war angst: his views of empty industrial wastelands, derelict buildings and a disturbing series of staring portrait heads will all come as a revelation to those who only know lowry as the poet of the lancashire mills.


Art - Djanogly Art Gallery 07

after the war, no longer fettered by the demands of caring for his invalid mother, lowry began travelling extensively throughout the british isles – a habit he maintained for the rest of his life - and the exhibition reveals other surprising aspects of his work in the ‘lonely’ landscapes of the lake district, yorkshire moors and derbyshire, as well as in his remarkable series of sea paintings. lowry always attached a great importance to draughtsmanship and alongside the paintings in this exhibition is displayed a large group of pencil drawings ranging from the most cursory of sketches on the back of an old envelope to fully realised studies for his painted compositions.

ls lowry The Lake 1937 © the lowry collection, salford

this exhibition celebrates 130 years of excellence at the University of nottingham. supported by sir harry and lady djanogly and organised in association with the crane kalman gallery, london, it includes a substantial body of works generously loaned by the lowry collection, salford. With special thanks to carol ann lowry and the estate of l s lowry.

edward burra Saturday 3 March - Sunday 27 May Djanogly Art Gallery admission free

this is the first major exhibition for over twenty-five years of the work of edward burra (1905-1976), providing the opportunity to reassess one of the most individual and celebrated british artists of the twentieth century. despite suffering from acute arthritis, burra created a large body of memorable paintings during his lifetime, characterized by their unusually powerful handling of the watercolour medium and his singular taste for the macabre. defiantly anti-intellectual, he was nevertheless widely read and drew on an extraordinary range of artistic influences from old masters to his own contemporaries, as well as hollywood cinema, ballet and jazz music.

in common with lowry, burra remained distinct from most mainstream modernist art movements though he was a member of the english surrealist group in the

1930s and a close friend of the artist paul nash. above all, burra painted for himself, describing his activity as ‘a sort of drug’ and each of his paintings creates a world unmistakably his own. for much of his life the artist lived in the picturesque sussex town of rye from which he travelled widely to such countries as france, spain, mexico and the Usa. some of his most memorable images were inspired by these trips, notably his ‘low life’ scenes of sailors and prostitutes in the southern ports of france and his affectionate depictions of 1930s harlem and boston nightlife that led him to be described as the ‘best painter of the american scene.’


12 Art - Djanogly Art Gallery

burra’s love of theatrical spectacle, film and ballet, was exuberantly expressed in his depictions of music halls and movie stars such as mae West. he was also one of the greatest british designers for the stage of the twentieth century and created striking décor and costumes for several notable ballets and operas, the designs for which have been brought together in this exhibition for the first time. in the later part of his life, burra travelled extensively around the british isles and the show concludes with some of the extraordinarily monumental watercolours of native landscape he produced at this time. edWard bUrra is a pallant house gallery touring exhibition, curated by simon martin. the exhibition has been sponsored by lefevre fine art ltd and supported by the pallant house gallery edward burra supporters’ circle.

Jo berry specialises in digital art, applying digital technology to traditional drawing techniques. her stunning series of colourful digital drawings and lightboxes explores the connection between art and science and celebrates the human body and the use of new technology. Jo spent six months working with scientists at the Queen’s medical centre in nottingham, studying how a ‘hunger’ hormone stimulates the body’s cells, potentially

paving the way for new drug treatments for obesity and diabetes by ‘turning hunger on and off’. she has turned her research into multi-layered, multi-coloured sculptural light boxes, digital drawings, vinyl artwork, animation and a ‘part documentary/part art’ film.

Mothers and Midwives a history of maternity in the east midlands

the experience of having a baby has changed dramatically over the last hundred years. it has moved from a social and domestic occurrence, which predominantly took place in the home, to a medical one which usually happens in hospital. the exhibition explores this development through historical and contemporary sources. it looks at reasons behind the change, and the impact that it has had on women, families, midwives and communities. it reveals changing trends in pregnancy, labour and postnatal care, infant feeding and baby care, and the growing involvement of fathers. the display’s main focus is the experience of maternity in the east midlands. it explores pregnancy, birth and the early weeks of caring for a new baby through a variety of local

‘Berlin: Symphony of a Great City’ With music by Jan kopinski & steve iliffe (reflektor)

a dawn to dusk portrait of 1920s’ berlin, combining documentary, abstract and lyrical imagery. With karl freund's masterly camerawork and the film's assured editing, berlin was hugely successful on its release in 1927, and that rarity - a film both popular and avant-garde. the music for 'berlin: symphony of a great city' follows the film's five acts with the classic genre of the daily diary of a city, established at this time by directors such as rutmann and vertov. following the pace and dazzle of the editing, the music responds to the human curiosity and the wonder of how we find ourselves in this chaotic world. With a mixture of scored and improvised music kopinski and iliffe's reflektor moves from the rhythmic to the abstract with grace and danger. berlin... contains moments of poetry that have seldom been equalled.

Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture follows the story of Coriolanus and is full of his inner torment contrasting his mother’s gentle pleading. Haydn has been dubbed Father of the Symphony producing some 104 works and yet his ‘Oxford’ Symphony is still fresh and colourful, subtle and poignant. Vaughan Williams’ ‘Folk Song Suite’ draws from his interest in folk music. Originally written for military band, the suite still contains much of its gusto and rhythmical pace. Excitingly this year the orchestra will be doing Mendelssohn’s ‘Lauda Sion’ as a joint work with Viva Voce. Commissioned for the 600th anniversary of Corpus Christi, the piece has some beautiful solos and will soar in the University’s hall. The concert finishes at approximately 9.15pm.

Meander Theatre is a new collaboration involving Nottingham based artists with regional, national and international reputations for their individual theatre practice. The company will be working alongside young people with learning disabilities from Oak Field School and Nottingham Theatre of Citizens to develop participants’ performing arts practice in dance, acting, visual design, digital art and music. Using the theme of A Good Day the groups will explore how a space, object, physical activity or sound can elicit joy, calm, excitement and a sense of well-being. Participants and artists invite audiences to share the results of their work in an interactive installation piece with live action and recorded footage of the process.

In Big Mouth - a collaboration with Keren Levi – the three performers spin into a march based on Israeli folk dance steps in this deeply personal work. Heroic music from the national cannon blasts out into the space demanding unity and conformity, and the performers find themselves trapped between their desire to be part of the system on the one hand and explore their personal identities on the other. Set against Chopin’s Waltzes, Covariance is an energetic and humorous exploration of the stages of human relationships. Moving from the colourful seduction phase, through manipulation and battle, to confusion, and then, finally acceptance. "One of the most powerful works I have ever seen. Personal, intelligent, humorous, sad." Globes www.nivoren.com

may is a young woman on the edge, teetering on the brink, an emotional time bomb with a wild imagination. douglas is her polar opposite; he fancies himself as a bit of a writer. he wants to help her, but he has problems of his own. darkly humourous, this is a modern day romance of sorts, told through dance, text and song. but, as the story unfolds, the performers reveal a world of complex human desires in which exterior pain is an escape from the interior of the mind.

Finding Your Way Around Lakeside

Car Parking

We have looked closely at how visitors find us on arrival at University park, and how they find their way around our different venues. We want to be sure visitors are aware of everything that lakeside offers, and this has become increasingly important as we open two new gallery spaces and prepare for the relocation of the University of nottingham museum. one result is improved directions to the public car parks shared by highfields park and lakeside, as well as to the other University car parks. another is better orientation through a new signage system consisting of numbered monoliths and directional signs. the monoliths are sited at the entrances to each venue, and feature a site plan with all the lakeside venues including our two cafes, whilst also highlighting popular facilities in highfields park, such as the play area.

there are two free car parks next to the d h lawrence pavilion. further pay and display parking is available on campus subject to demand; the nearest car park is on science road (first right after the south entrance). parking is free in the evening and at weekends. parking restrictions are in place monday to friday 9.15am-4.30pm when a ticket will be needed. however the first 30 minutes (with a ticket) is free. Disabled Parking there are designated spaces located close to lakeside’s venues. for the djanogly art gallery and recital hall please use the spaces on east drive (in front of those buildings). for the djanogly theatre or other venues located inside the dh lawrence pavilion there are 2 spaces in the free car park next to the pavilion. an additional 9 spaces are next to the lake (past the gatehouse, then first left off east drive towards the d h lawrence pavilion. more information on the parking on the campus is on the University’s website at http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/estates/ security/carparking.aspx
