Everyone's a winner One of our key roles at NAE is to nurture and share the makings of talented contemporary artists. This season we launch our first official prize-giving NAE Open exhibition, five years on from Culture Cloud, our experiment to test digital engagement and open platforms. This year’s judging panel has worked hard with the NAE team to make the long list of exhibiting artists, so a big thanks to Beverley Sterling, Jagdish Patel, Louise Fedotov-Clements, Matthew Chesney, Christine Eyene, Salma Tuqan and Sarah Perks. The local to national response has been strong with a variety of visual artforms including live art and film, with close to 700 art works from nearly 300 artists applying. Lock the dates and join us on Friday 23 August see who will win the awards. Of course everyone is a winner.

13 JULY – 8 SEPTEMBER 2019 EXHIBITION LAUNCH Friday 12 July 2019, 6pm – 9pm AWARDS CEREMONY Friday 23 August 2019, 6pm – 9pm

Enjoy a huge variety of art at NAE this summer, with works in painting, drawing, video, live art, sculpture, installation and mixed media by over 50 artists. The NAE Open was created through an open application process which received nearly 700 submissions. A panel of judges viewed each to select what they felt to be the most innovative and accomplished works, creating a snapshot of contemporary fine art practice today. Given NAE’s key priorities in supporting both culturally diverse and local talent, the exhibition was open to all artists living in Nottinghamshire and also to artists of culturally diverse heritage and those exploring diversity within their practice living anywhere in the UK.

Positive Images CENTRAL GALLERY 13 July – 8 September 2019

ACCESSIBILITY INFORMATION

Together Today and New Art Exchange are proud to be presenting Positive Images, a photographic exhibition that displays a snapshot into the lives of Nottingham’s Romanian community. Developed over a six month period by Alina Moldovean, Stelian Afrasinei, Minerva Hartley and five volunteers, the aim of the project is to provide insight into the life of our local community by sharing their stories and experiences of living in the UK. The resulting exhibition presented here at NAE is made up of a collection of portraits and interviews collected by the group. The project is developed in partnership with Inspire Foundation and Nottingham City Council.

Please note that there is limited access to the Central Gallery due to its location on the stairs. A printed version of the show is available from reception.

EXHIBITIONS

Nirvair Singh Rai & Janhavi Sharma: Memory of Land NAE FORECOURT 1 August – 8 September 2019

Photographer and filmmaker Nirvair Singh Rai and visual artist Janhavi Sharma have embarked on a research project across the Punjab region of India and the holy city of Amritsar to create a new body of work. The installation, combining photography and digitally manipulated painting, seeks to remember the Jallianwalla Bagh massacre of 1919 which saw British Indian Army troops fire upon unarmed Indian civilians who were assembled for a peaceful protest and to honour the Sikh festival of Baisakhi.

Through visiting the site, and interviewing local communities, Rai and Sharma seek to understand the psychology of surviving grief through the memory of land; land being the only witness left 100 years on from this deplorable act. Part of Here There & Everywhere and Nottingham Arts Mela 2019.

LIVE ART

GHUNGAROO VADAN BY ANKITA ANAND

URO BY VIVIAN CHINASA EZUGHA

NAE OPEN LIVE ART

NAE OPEN LIVE ART

Ghungaroo Vadan is an experimental performance using ghungaroos and OSC messages sent from mobile phone to MAX/MSP. It explores the overlapping spaces between spirituality and technology through combining Indian classical dance elements and technological embodiment.

Uro is about the idea of dying and rebirth, depression and awaking. In this durational performance, the artist interacts with clay and water on her body. The weight of the clay becomes a force that she works with and against over the hours of the performance. Sitting on the skin as a weighty, damp material, it becomes a solid foundation and morphs the body.

Weaving together a joyous fusion of Egyptian, Nubian and British musical traditions, Kaddal Merrill is the collaboration of classically trained Egyptian flautist Fayrouz Kaddal and innovative British folk fiddler Daniel Merrill. The percussion of traditional Middle Eastern drums provides intricate and heady beats through which the flute and violin dive, dance and spin. Is it folk? Is it world music? Both and neither. Both sun soaked and rain drenched, this music speaks of artists exploring their sense of place, culture and identity. £8 (£6 concession) All are welcome Image: Samir T Radwan
