If ever there was an influential instigator of thinking who transformed the confidence of a community into positive activism, championing the creative expressions and voices of culturally diverse Britain, then one has to acknowledge the depth and gravitas of Stuart Hall’s work. This season launches with John Akomfrah’s highly acclaimed film The Unfinished Conversation which explores the ongoing clash and reincarnation of culture and identity as explored through the refraction of Hall’s memory. Our season in many ways responds to and provides a temperature of art and culture being produced by diverse cultures no longer defined solely by heritage or even stereotypical codes. I am particularly delighted to announce that we will be delivering a major symposium in partnership with Nottingham Trent University, chaired by Ekow Eshun discussing the context and content of The Unfinished Conversation featuring film maker John Akomfrah, Kodwo Eshun and Mark Sealy of Autograph to name a few. We have an action packed season of exhibitions including Paul Goodwin’s curation of photographer Charlie Phillips and we have a special in-conversation with writer and broadcaster Bidisha. We have also programmed a range of performances, film screenings, gallery tours, young people’s arts, family friendly workshops, artist sharings, a guest chef, the Jack Vickers Award, Mela100 and so much more… Our new feature is The Exchange on Sunday an explosion of art and culture from courses, performances, café treats to all sorts of experiments. So do join us! And don’t forget to check out our first ever guest column on page 29 written by our Chair Eddy Maxwell (MBE) and Vice Chair Sukhy Johal (MBE). As always we look forward to connecting with you this season. Skinder Hundal Chief Executive, NAE

THE UNFINISHED CONVERSATION JOHN AKOMFRAH 11 MAY – 14 JULY 2013 MAIN GALLERY
LAUNCH EVENT: FRIDAY 10 MAY 2013, 6PM - 9PM
New Art Exchange (NAE) is proud to present The Unfinished Conversation by John Akomfrah, a beautiful, moving and multi-layered film about Jamaican-born academic Stuart Hall. The piece, commissioned by Autograph ABP, premiered at the 2012 Liverpool Biennial to overwhelming critical acclaim. The Unfinished Conversation is presented as an immersive three-channel video installation, and examines the nature of the visual as triggered across the individual’s memory landscape with particular reference to identity and race. The film sees academic Stuart Hall’s memories and personal archives extracted and relocated in an imagined and different time, reflecting the questionable nature of memory itself. The Unfinished Conversation looks at the theory that identity is not an essence or being but instead a becoming, where individual subjectivities are formed in both real and fictive spaces. The Unfinished Conversation is an Autograph ABP Commission. Executive producer Mark Sealy, Director of Autograph ABP. Produced by Lina Gopaul and David Lawson, Smoking Dogs Films in collaboration with Professor Stuart Hall. As a co-founding member of the Black Audio Film Collective (1982), John Akomfrah achieved critical success in 1986 with his debut film documentary, Handsworth Songs. Through his celebrated technique of juxtaposing and layering archive footage with new and historical photo stills, soundscapes, personal testimonies and text, John investigates and unpacks the complexities of identity through his practice. Previous films include: The Nine Muses (2010), Mnemosyne (2009), Seven Songs for Malcolm X (1993) and Handsworth Songs (1986). John Akomfrah is now recognised as one of Britain’s most pioneering and intellectually rewarding film-makers. (Cont.)

Identity is an ever-unfinished conversation.” Stuart Hall Please note screenings of the Unfinished Conversation start on the hour from 10am – 4pm. We advise viewing the full duration of the piece which is around 45 minutes. Please turn to page 29 to read our guest column which explores how Stuart Hall’s ideas have helped shape NAE.

CHARLIE PHILLIPS: THE URBAN EYE 20 APRIL – 7 JULY 2013 MEZZANINE GALLERY
LAUNCH EVENT: SATURDAY 20 APRIL 2013, 12PM - 2PM Charlie Phillips photographs capture fleeting moments in time, space and memory that relate to people’s everyday experience of life in cities. For over 50 years Phillips has used the medium of photography to document, archive, explore and celebrate the rich diversity of characters, landscapes and emotions that form part of the migrant’s experience in the UK. This exhibition, curated by Paul Goodwin, is this artist’s first solo exhibition outside of London. The exhibition assembles Charlie Phillips’ seminal London photographs documenting the social landscape of the Notting Hill neighbourhood in the 1960s and early 70s. These pictures illustrate a social and built environment very much shaped by West Indian migration to Britain since the late 1940s against the backdrop of rapid urban change and rebuilding. Street life, interracial relationships, Carnival, fashion and images of bohemia were very much part of the constructed and contested mythology of Notting Hill. Paul Goodwin and Charlie Phillips will lead a tour of the exhibition during the launch.

OUT OF DA WOOD: SCULPTURE BY BILL MING 27 JULY – 8 SEPTEMBER 2013 MAIN GALLERY
LAUNCH EVENT: FRIDAY 26 JULY 2013, 6PM - 9PM Bill Ming was born in Bermuda and came to live in Nottinghamshire in 1971. His sculptures draw inspiration from personal experiences and a rich cultural heritage that originated in Africa, the Americas and Europe. Bill uses wood and various materials to create cultural collages which reflect the physical and spiritual aspects of life in all forms. Curated by Lucy Atkinson, Out of Da Wood brings together a collection of new and existing works which explore the artist’s use of materials and celebrates his skill as a storyteller. Drawing inspiration from key moments in his life, the works inadvertently tell much about the environment, culture, politics and history of Bermuda. Touching on the apartheid, the story of Bill’s immigration to England, and his reception once he arrived; visitors to the exhibition will recognise and relate to the personal experiences described by the artists. “My work is a journey of exploration, in which other travellers are essential. An art of healing not dealing, of exorcism not commercialism.”
10 AUGUST – 14 SEPTEMBER 2013 MEZZANINE GALLERY
LAUNCH EVENT: SATURDAY 10 AUGUST 2013, 12PM - 2PM Michelle Walsh is a photographer based in the East Midlands. Her interests are in contemporary portraiture, influenced by psychology and consciousness studies, as well as the exploration of photography as a contemplative art form. This exhibition has developed from Michelle’s ExperiMentor project with NAE. Using the venue as a base, Michelle visited the spaces where Nottingham people come together to engage in contemplative practices associated with a variety of religious and secular traditions. The individuals depicted within the exhibition were photographed and filmed by Michelle immediately following meditation, prayer, yoga or devotional song. The collection seeks to ask how such practices affect our conscious state of being and whether the ‘disappearing into presence’, frequently described as a result of such practices, can be reflected in a portrait?

Human Destroys, Human Creates This inaugural exhibition of the newly formed artists’ group BlankAtlas, is a refined visual dialogue derived from informed research and experiences of humanity’s paradoxical need to both destroy and create. It aims to address and bridge social, psychological, global, political, economic and environmental sensibilities. The debate around this paradox stems from the tension between humanity and nature, survival and peace, destruction and creation that exist symbiotically and despite each other. BlankAtlas is an artists’ group established in 2012 to provide a place for Nottingham’s international artists to come together, challenge, debate, produce, and present their commitment to art without restriction. The group consists of artists from very different backgrounds, both in terms of artistic practice and nationality of origin.
Through photography, installation, technical drawing and photomontage, Illuminated precedes Mental Health Awareness Week which runs from 13 - 17 May 2013. The artists of Illuminated are Charlotte Allchurch, Kayrakise Evans, Mark Lindsay and Simone Pinkett. The project has been coordinated by Nottingham Photographers’ Hub (NPH). NPH is a social enterprise aiming to empower marginalised communities through photography skills. For further details go to www.nphub.org.uk 20 May – 8 June 2013) Central Gallery

An Evening with Sura Susso
Based on an idea by Mukhtar Dar Dir: James Pogson Witness a life-changing meeting between Glitzy, an emerging grime artist (played by DECI4LIFE) who is funded to study for 6-months on a ‘community arts placement’ and his newly appointed ‘development mentor’, the veteran dub poet and radical cultural activist Leroy ‘Steppin-Razor’ Ujima (played by Moqapi Selassie). The contradictions in their relationship are dramatised through a startling, intense lyrical dialogue that challenges the assumptions of both wordsmiths. Against a soundscape of reggae, dub step and grime, this inspiring play by two dynamic performance poets explores the intergenerational conflict that exists in our communities. Part of a national tour funded by Arts Council England Admission: £7 (£5 concession) Age range: 14+

Who’s in the Kitchen Who’s in the Kitchen is NAE’s ever-changing portfolio of guest chefs from our local community who introduce delicious new dishes to our already tantalising café menu! This season Monica Riley, a member of the Caribbean Elders Club at the Brick Yard Community Centre, has selected the national dish of Barbados “Cou Cou and Flying Fish”. The dish was brought to Barbados in 1644 by African slaves. Flying Fish appears on Barbadian coins, is the seal of the Barbados Tourism Authority and features in the Island’s Art. Caribbean fishing and coastal life also helped inspire Bill Ming’s exhibition (see page 8). Flying Fish is seasonal which can often be difficult to source, for this purpose we have replaced Flying Fish with Pollock.

Learning at NAE Community at NAE Community engagement is important to NAE and we want to develop sustainable relationships with our neighbours. The community programme aims to engage and broaden our access by working in a range of organisations, developing long and short term partnerships. Caribbean Through a Lens is just one of our current partnership projects. Here we have worked with the National Archive and members of the Chase Community Neighbourhood Centre selecting images of colonial life in the Caribbean, and capturing context and stories behind these images. Members from the lunch club, and youngest from the youth club, have worked together. The results will be showcased in an exhibition celebrating Black History Month at NAE next season, and within a virtual gallery. “I thought taking part in this project was fun and I enjoyed looking at the old photographs. Looking at pictures is interesting; every time I looked at the photo I saw something different”.
