Free family fun in honour of the gallery's new exhibition
Nottingham Contemporary is a small art gallery in the middle of the city centre composed of four galleries with constantly changing exhibitions. The gallery has been described as 'the most inspiring gallery in the UK' (Guardian), and sums up its purpose as 'We're here to offer international art, for everyone, for free.'
On the theme of 'for everyone, for free,' the gallery hosts a programme of events full of free activities for families in conjunction with its exhibition calendar. The family activities reflect the themes of current exhibitions in a child-friendly and interactive manner.
The next family activity titled 'Illuminate and Communicate,' will take place over half term from Sat 16 Feb – Sun 24 Feb, 11am–3pm (closed Mon). The activities are inspired by the latest new exhibition at the gallery: Daniel Steegmann Mangrané, opening 16 Feb 2019. This exhibition will be the first major UK solo show for the artist. The exhibition uses installation, architecture, film, and virtual reality to explore diverse representations of Mata Atlântica, a highly endangered rainforest on the Atlantic coast of Brazil.
The family-friendly programme will present activities for the children to explore 'how we can play, capture and manipulate light and sound through performance, drawings and projections.'
