Why so serious? Let’s play instead. The art of play, exploring and sharing knowledge through games, is part of all cultures. Our summer season offers a rich playground of exhibitions, festivals and artistic encounters inspired by our Main Gallery exhibition, The Current Situation, by Yara El-Sherbini.

This year’s Mela celebrations take inspiration from a One Day International cricket match where South Asian and British cultures collide and combine. NAE presents a colourful weekend of live music, film screenings, performances, games, parades, digital archives of past Melas and kite flying!

Yara’s exhibition, uses the fun format of a buzz wire game to engage visitors with issues surrounding world borders. The artist’s alternative take on a pub quiz invites guests at The Lion Inn to become active participants in a live art piece. Exhibiting alongside Yara, Aya Haidar’s exhibition Year of Issue uses symbolic books to explore matters surrounding the notion of national independence. Through a series of special events for Refugee Week, the programme delves deeper into the impact of national identities and boundaries, physical and perceived, central to both exhibitions.

In the spirit of festivals, NAE joins with other Nottingham venues to present theatre and arts events from across Europe for neat14. We are also proud to host the launch of this year’s Carnival with colourful Caribbean entertainment and drinks.

This season we are introducing an exciting new activity kHELO! for families to enjoy. Inspired by Yara El-Sherbini’s playful exhibition, the giant soft board game is equally suitable for younger explorers and puzzle-solving adventurers.

Real Creative Futures, a new programme of support for creative talents of Nottingham, recognises the benefits that creativity has on the public, community, and economy. Be sure to find out more and connect. In honour of the late Professor Stuart Hall we will be screening John Akomfrah’s acclaimed film The Stuart Hall Project. There is so much to do and get involved with! I’d be delighted to see you around and experience the gift of creative expression. Skinder Hundal

Yara El-Sherbini’s interdisciplinary practice uses humour to question social and political systems of power and influence. The artist utilises recognisable formats within contemporary popular culture, such as pub quizzes and games, to playfully disarm viewers and the participants, engaging them with the socio-political ideas central to her work. Including both off-site and on-site interventions, at the heart of the exhibition will be the newly commissioned artwork, The Current Situation. The piece is a multi-player participatory artwork that subverts the traditional ‘buzz wire’ game into the form of a giant metal map of the world. Visitors to the gallery will take on the challenge of navigating the borders of the global map with a hand held device to avoid activating an electric charge and ‘buzz’. Some territories are more difficult to navigate and contour than others, examining notions around the establishment of borders, the division of land and expansion of empires.

The exhibition also includes a number of site specific works; Where are you originally from: Answer ‘Britain’ is a sound installation from the artist’s Public Address series, which uses the NAE tannoy system to ask us to consider how we, the public, assume and transfer knowledge of other cultures. A wordsearch created through engaging local communities, is placed in a local newspaper to explore what collectively, we may all be searching for. On Tuesday 20 May 7.30pm, join Yara El-Sherbini in the Lion Inn for her take on the traditional Pub Quiz! See page 8 for details on A Pub Quiz and other public engagements with Yara El-Sherbini. Yara El-Sherbini is represented by La Caja Blanca, and is an Artsadmin Associate Artist. This exhibition has been supported by Artsadmin.

Black Box: NTU BA Hons Photography Degree Show

Launch Event: Friday 9 May, 6pm – 9pm

Launch Event: Saturday 24 May, 3pm – 5pm

El-Sherbini’s exhibition is complimented by Aya Haider’s installations in the Mezzanine Gallery. Haidar’s practice focuses on the recycling of found and disposable objects to make poetic works that explore loss, migration and memory, with a particular focus on the Middle East. Her exhibition includes the work Year of Issue, 2013, an installation of 18 books representing the 18 countries across the MENA region, whereby each book shares the same year of publication as its respective country’s year of independence. The choice of books highlights the reciprocity to their country’s respective affairs of state and adds a certain ironic, incisive and perhaps even humorous dimension.

Black Box is the 18th annual Nottingham Trent University photography festival that takes place across various locations in the city. Selected students from the course present their work at NAE.

Yara El-Sherbini in Conversation with Manick Govinda & Aya Haidar

A Pub Quiz by Yara El-Sherbini

Yara El-Sherbini joins Manick Govinda (Artsadmin) for a stimulating conversation around her newly commissioned exhibition. As well as providing an introduction to Yara’s practice, the event will explore in depth her subverted version of a giant ‘buzz wire’ game that will occupy our Main Gallery over the summer period.

In this participatory live art piece, Yara subverts the contents of a traditional pub quiz through 36 politically charged and humorous questions. Presented in a fun format and hosted by The Lion Inn, the pub audience becomes active participants, where the conversations that arise have as much value as the questions asked.

Aya Haidar, whose exhibition opens in the Mezzanine Gallery over the same period, will also join the conversation.

Turn up, grab a drink and pay 50p quiz entry fee for a chance to win the £50 prize up for grabs!
