From the end of September to the beginning of January, Nottingham Contemporary is running two exhibitions across three gallery spaces: Grace Before Jones: Camera, Disco, Studio and Jimmy Robert: Akimbo . Using a variety of multimedia techniques, the two exhibitions explore such themes as binary systems, black image-making, appropriation, performance, identity and representation.



Grace Before Jones: Camera, Disco, Studio uses photography, video, music, fashion, and design to present elements of Grace Jones' career as a vehicle to explore theories of gender, sexuality, performance, identity and image-making. The first gallery focuses on photography and video presented within an unadorned frame construction, while the second gallery creates a nightclub disco atmosphere alongside displays connected to fashion and design.





Jimmy Robert: Akimbo brings together sculpture, film, installation, and works in paper and leather in the largest-ever presentation of the artist's work in the UK.





In bringing together a wide range of works from over two decades, this exhibition seeks to explore such themes as 'performance and gesture, the politics of spectatorship, appropriation, and the personal and political body, along with their racialised and gendered readings.'





The exhibition runs from 26 September 2020 to 3 January 2021. Entrance is free.
