Bonington Gallery response to COVID-19

Bonington Gallery closes temporarily with immediate effect.

We regret that in response to the COVID-19 crisis Bonington Gallery has closed until further notice. While the gallery is closed, we will be working on other ways of sharing art and ideas across our digital platforms. Follow our website and social media channels for videos, conversations and more.

Our office hours are 9am – 5pm, Monday – Friday. Most of the team will be working remotely during this time but will be reachable via email. Please email boningtongallery@ntu.ac.uk with any enquiries, and for further information regarding postponed or cancelled events.

Thank you to all our visitors and supporters – we hope it is not too long before we can welcome you back to the Gallery.

 


 

Just outside the gallery, you’ll find the Bonington Vitrines – two display cases that present an ever-changing series of projects which run alongside the exhibitions.

For the 15th instalment of our Bonington Vitrines programme, we are delighted to welcome Nomadic Vitrine, a curatorial project run by Recent Activity in Birmingham. Nomadic Vitrine invites artists to respond to a nomadic display case, either using it functionally to present work or intervening with it sculpturally. The vitrine in itself is a redundant sculpture, replacing the gallery as a space for artists to create work in/on/for. It builds on historical notions of display and visibility, both within and beyond the gallery and is placed in various locations around Birmingham and further afield, changing for each exhibition.

This instalment will be inhabited by Glasgow-based artist Mick Peter. Mick’s playful installations incorporate imagery influenced by illustration and commercial art. His work for Nomadic Vitrine wittily undermines the assumed hushed reverential attitude of the gallery goer. Using the inverted vitrine, the space becomes a site for an unexpected sight gag.

Recent Activity is a curatorial project based in Birmingham, delivering exhibitions and events. It is organised by artist Andrew Gillespie, with support from Ryan Kearney.

Mick Peter lives in Glasgow, UK.

He has recently had solo shows at BALTIC, Gateshead (2019), Deborah Bowmann, Brussels (2018/19), Glasgow International (2018), Galerie Crèvecoeur, Paris (2017), Workplace, Gateshead (2016), Tramway, Glasgow (2015), and Drawing Room, London (2016), Popcorn Plaza, part of Generation: 25 Years of Contemporary Art in Scotland, Jupiter Artland (2014) and Almost Cut My Hair, part of Generation: 25 Years of Contemporary Art in Scotland, Tramway Hidden Gardens, (2014). Recent group shows include ‘Voyage au long cours’ at FRACNormandie Caen (2018), Natural Selection’ at Galerie 5, Angers (2016), France and & ‘Corps narratifs’ at the Domaine départemental de Chamarande, Chamarande, France (2016). Puddle, pothole, portal at Sculpture Center, New York (2014), L’Echo at HAB Galerie – FRAC des Pays de la Loire, (2014), Monument at FRAC Basse-Normandie, (2014), British British Polish Polish: Art from Europe’s Edges in the Long 90’s and Today at the Centre for Contemporary Art, and Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw, (2013).
