At NN Contemporary Art this winter, New Life celebrates the graduate artists of 2014. The exhibition presents selected artwork by recent graduates from a 50mile radius of Northampton.

Artistic Director, Catherine Hemelryk, has been scouting for New Life at degree shows from Oxford to Cambridge, Leicester to Luton, Coventry and Northampton. The show brings together selected works by Fine Art graduates using media ranging from photography to painting and installation.

The Opening Night on Wednesday 17 December 2014 marks the gallery’s 2nd birthday at Number Nine Guildhall Road. Everyone is invited to celebrate the upcoming generations of artists in New Life and two full and busy years of NN from 6pm.

Multiverse Redux

  • 12 March 2015 2-6pm

Multiverse Redux is an afternoon of talks, screenings and a workshop, revisiting NN Contemporary Art’s 2014 Northampton Multiverse season.

NN’s Northampton Multiverse was a season of exhibitions and events exploring artists’ worlds, hidden histories, and different ideas of the world we are in. In true spirit of the Multiverse, speakers Andy Holden, Michelle Deignan and Catherine Hemelryk, will be revisiting a parallel Northampton Multiverse in this season finale.

Set in a universe where the very laws of nature are different, artist Andy Holden will give his performance lecture Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape.

Artist and filmmaker Michelle Deignan will be screening her new science fiction infused work filmed at Northampton's iconic landmark, the National Lift Tower. Deignan will also talk about her practice, in which she creates factual and fictional narratives through video, film, text and photography.

Catherine Hemelryk, Artistic Director at NN Contemporary Art and curator of the 2014 Multiverse Season, will be giving a tour through time and space, and looking back at the season with a parallel take.

There will also be an interactive element to the afternoon, where you will have the opportunity to reflect on the Multiverse season through a creative workshop.

Free, all welcome. Booking is essential, tickets available from http://www.eventbrite.com/e/multiverse-redux-tickets-15759350642
