'There goes the neighbourhood' 09 December 2015

This months Frieze magazine features a great article by Jonathan P.Watts (NTU Lecturer, writer, critic) examining how gentrification in London is impacting upon the lives of artists who live and worth there. The article uses Nottingham (& Norwich’s) burgeoning artist-led communities as examples of how critically engaged and sustainable practices can establish themselves away from ‘major’ cities. The article uses several specific examples including The Midland Group, Stand Assembly (now One Thoresby Street), Primary, TG & Syson, and the ever vital Outpost Gallery in Norwich.

This article accompanies a recent Frieze commissioned film of the same title that can be watched here.

You can keep updated and get an overview of artistic activity in the city via the Nottingham Art Map.

Visiting us safely 12 August 2021

We are delighted to be launching our 2021/22 season with a solo exhibition spanning 50 years of work by Andrew Logan, one of Britain’s most iconic artists.

We have put several measures in place to make your visit safe. They are constantly under review, subject to change and may vary slightly depending on Government guidance. Please check back to this page prior to planning your visit.

– Please do not visit the gallery if you have COVID-19 symptoms, are self-isolating, or have been in contact with someone who has coronavirus. Follow the NHS coronavirus guidelines.

– We recommend that you download the NHS COVID-19 app in advance of your visit and check in via the QR code when you arrive.

– Entry to the gallery is via the main entrance of the Bonington Building and floor markers will assist with social distancing. Please ‘check-in’ to the main building on arrival via the NHS app, and sanitise your hands.

– We recommend that face masks or coverings are worn upon entrance to the building and gallery. There are some free masks available within the building if you forget.

– 2m social distancing is advised inside the gallery, as it is throughout the building and campus. Please follow signage and wayfinding measures to adhere to best routes throughout the building and gallery.

Contact areas in the gallery, such as doors and handrails, will be subject to cleaning throughout the day. An enhanced cleaning regime is in place across all University buildings.
Clear signage at the gallery entrance will outline the key measures we are adhering too. Please refer to these for guidance. A gallery assistant will also be on hand to help.
