RICHARD HAMILTON WORD AND IMAGE: PRINTS 1963-2007

  • 7 March — 31 May 2015 *on now

Dubbed the forefather of Pop Art, the themes and concerns of Hamilton's paintings and drawings were also pursued in his graphic design works on which he collaborated with some of the greatest master printers of the twentieth century. The selection of 43 works represents the full range of his technical accomplishments from traditional engraving, etching and aquatint, to screen print in the 1960s, and ending with the newly emergent digital media embraced by the artist in his later years.

His appropriation of imagery from popular culture is reflected in such early prints as Adonis in Y fronts 1963. Wider contemporary and political issues provide the subjects of the Swingeing London suite and number of works concerning the troubles in Ireland.

An exhibition organised and toured by Barbican International Enterprises.

JUSTIN MORTIMER

  • 7 March — 31 May 2015 *on now

Justin Mortimer's canvases have been described as history painting for the present age, fragmented scenes hinting at political and social upheaval, and detailed unspecified acts of human cruelty and suffering. In his recent work, these scenes are typically enacted in an indeterminate space, often in scrub woodland at night illuminated by the flash of a camera or the sulphurous glow of a flare.

His subjects are never literal or explicit but operate on a viscerally emotional and psychological level, creating a general aura of malaise and foreboding. Frequently this darkly sinister mood is given a sharper edge through the introduction of an incongruous detail such as a cluster of party balloons.

Academically trained, and for the early part of his career a successful portraitist, Mortimer is one of a growing number of international contemporary artists - especially from eastern Europe - who have reinvigorated the tradition of figurative painting.

His imagery is gleaned from the internet and digitally collaged to create the starting point for his compositions. In this respect, the work has an affinity with that of Richard Hamilton (running concurrently in Gallery 2 p.10) who in his later years readily embraced digital media as a vital element of popular culture.

Charging Against Napoleon: Wellington's Campaigns in the Peninsular Wars and at Waterloo

  • 22 May — 6 September 2015

The Napoleonic Wars, which were fought between Britain, France and their allies from 1803, came to an end with the Battle of Waterloo on the 18 June 1815. This exhibition, timed to coincide with the bicentenary of Waterloo, reflects on the conflict in its later stages, from the Peninsular Wars in Spain and Portugal in 1808 to the end of hostilities seven years later.

Drawing on the material from The University of Nottingham's collections, the exhibition assesses the nature and impact of the war and its consequences. The displays describe key moments in the conflict, chart the rise to prominence of military commanders such as the Duke of Wellington and reveal Nottinghamshire's contribution to the war effort.

The exhibition also explores the wider legacy of the wars. In Spain, British forces fought alongside those seeking liberation from foreign conquest. In Britain, the return of peace was accompanied by new demands for political and social change.

The exhibition has been jointly curated by Richard Gaunt (associate Professor of History in the School of Humanities) and Manuscripts and Special Collections at the University of Nottingham.

A Midsummer Night's Dream

  • 27 March — 2 May 2015 *on now

‘The course of true love never did run smooth…’

Step into a world of glittering illusion as Lakeside reinvents William Shakespeare’s timeless romantic comedy: A Midsummer Night’s Dream. One of the most beautifully lyrical of the playwright’s creations, join Puck and enter into the forest to explore the realms of mischief and magic. Following the stories of star-crossed lovers, impish fairies and clumsy thespians, the fusion of the earthly and the enchanted ultimately results in disastrous consequences. Lakeside’s hilarious and aesthetically entrancing revival of this cherished play is accessible and entertaining for all audiences, making it a production not to be missed.

Following two successful co-productions working in partnership with Nottingham New Theatre, Lakeside is delighted to be working in partnership with The Nottingham New Theatre, following two successful co-productions of Lysistrata and Dr Faustus.

Emily Allchurch

Emily Allchurch

  • 18 July — 31 August 2015

Emily Allchurch uses photography to recreate old master paintings and prints, creating contemporary narratives. She has reworked compositions by Peter Bruegel the Elder, Utagawa Hiroshige, Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Adolphe Valette and James Abbott McNeill Whistler. Her works are seamless digital collages, using hundreds of photographs taken in urban environments today. The complex photographic images have a resonance with place, history, culture and deal with passage of time and the changes to a landscape, fusing contemporary life with a sense of history.

The exhibition will showcase Allchurch's celebrated Tokyo Story and Tokaido Road series, which pay homage to the 19th century Japanese printmaker Hiroshige. Produced as lightboxes, they reveal not only the changing nature of the topography but also the changes to Japanese society and customs. They will be shown alongside rarely seen original Hiroshige woodblock prints.

Also on show is a selection of works with an urban European theme. This includes a recreation on Whistler's Nocturne: Blue and Silver Cremorne Lights and works inspired by Piranesi's 18th century etchings of urban fantasies. Allchurch will also show her newly commissioned work for Manchester Art Gallery based on Albert Square, Manchester by French Impressionist Valette, creating a dialogue between the Edwardian and contemporary city.

A new artwork inspired by Breugel's The Tower of Babel will feature at the Djanogly. Depicting the architecture and buildings of London, this work will inspire a series of workshops for families and young people throughout the exhibition exploring the role of urban areas and architecture in our lives.

Commemorating Waterloo 1815-2015

  • 5 August 2015 1-2pm

For years, Britons commemorated the Battle of Waterloo in a myriad of ways. However, after Wellington's death in 1852, official acts of public commemoration declined as the legacy of Waterloo was both contested and politicised. In this talk, Dr Russ Foster, a specialist on Wellington, considers why this remains the case to this day.
