4. Nottingham Contemporary
Head to Nottingham Contemporary on Friday 19th May from 6.30pm to join the launch of the new Lara Favaretto and Wu Tsang exhibition, and be one of the first ones to find out what’s the secret behind the mysterious white fog that’s been appearing over Nottingham Contemporary recently.
