From Ear to Ear to Eye

From Ear to Ear to Eye explores the politics of sound, music and listening in myriad forms. It traces the acoustic lives of cities and places across the Arab world. Bringing together installation, sculpture, photography, film, music and performance by almost 20 artists, From Ear to Ear to Eye is concerned with the many ways in which translation, notation and recording are used to map memories and migration, territories and conflict.

The House of Fame: Curated by Linder 24 Mar – 17 Jun 2018

The House of Fame
is a major exhibition conceived by the British artist Linder. The presentation is part retrospective, covering four decades of the British artist’s photomontage and performance, and part constellation of her influences. The House of Fame is a collaboration with Chatsworth House, where Linder is currently the inaugural artist in residence, and will join the dots between fashion and collage, surrealism and spiritualism, lace and architecture. The exhibition includes more than 100 works by some 50 practitioners, including artists, designers, architects, musicians and photographers. The House of Fame is the third season of the critically acclaimed Grand Tour partnership, supported by Arts Council England.

In summer 2018, Nottingham Contemporary presents two solo shows by Trix and Robert Haussmann and Pia Camil – both first-time solo exhibitions in the UK. The playful innovation of the Swiss architects and designers Trix and Robert Haussmann is celebrated in a retrospective combining varied works from their 50-year career. From mirrored installations to maquettes, their playful and subversive designs combine influences from popular culture and classical forms. Pia Camil presents an immersive installation in which her textile works and ceramics come to life. Her work takes inspiration from public spaces, found materials and her native Mexico City.
Still I Rise 27 Oct 2018 – 27 Jan 2019
Still I Rise

Carolina Caycedo, One Body of Water, 2015

Still I Rise examines resistance movements, ranging from the 19th century to today, from a women-led and queer perspective. The exhibition brings together artworks, archival displays and material culture by artists, dancers, writers and designers from around the world, in a presentation that is infused by different senses of ritual as a form of resistance. Community building, togetherness and collaboration are at the centre of Still I Rise. In the galleries, a meeting/stage-space will host discussions, workshops and performances. In a self-publishing section, visitors will be invited to build their own version of the accompanying publication.

Speak In Nottingham To Me – A Beginner’s Guide To Nottingham’s Dialect

Language is certainly one of our best creations. Without it, it would be difficult for us to coexist, establish communities and share feelings. Language makes it all easier and helps us work together and understand one another. Throughout history people always felt the need to find one universal language for all. Several attempts were made to popularise different languages…
