Keith Piper: Unearthing the Banker's Bones

  • 1 April — 11 June 2017 *on now

Graduating from Nottingham Trent University (then Trent Polytechnic) in 1983, Piper spent his university years living here in NAE's local neighbourhood of Hyson Green. During this period, along with artists Eddie Chambers, Marlene Smith and Donald Rodney, Piper co-founded the groundbreaking BLK Art Group, a collective who fought to raise the profile of black artists. Unearthing The Banker's Bones comprises new and existing digital installation and painting works, and addresses the impact of globalisation. Collectively the selected artworks continue to explore the socio-political questions that have defined Piper's practice since his time with the BLK Art Group.

Juan delGado: Altered Landscapes

  • 17 June — 6 August 2017

Altered Landscapes incorporates video, photography, light and sound. Presented as an immersive installation, it invites the viewer to navigate the gallery space and absorb the experiences of travelling through an unfamiliar landscape reminiscent of journeys made by many refugees. It reflects on the current situation in Europe, at the time when many European countries are fortifying their borders with wire fences and watchtowers to stop the flow of refugees.
