FREE (Limited Capacity. Booking required for launch night)

Join Nottingham Contemporary for an evening of art as they celebrate the launch of this year's Catalyst Exhibition - FRAMES. This exhibition explores the complexities of hierarchy, accessibility, and perception in contemporary art and society.

The exhibition is a collaboration between Nottingham Trent University's MFA and MA Illustration students. With guidance from the Nottingham Contemporary team, the group explored the themes in Paul Mpagi Sepuya: Exposure and Dora Budor: Again.

They aim to confront the barriers that exist between artists, artwork, and audience. FRAMES not only offers captivating artworks on display, but also a unique opportunity for interactive audience participation. You can experience the art of screen printing and become an integral part of the creative process.

Join them as we celebrate the launch of FRAMES and embark on a journey of reflection on the structures that shape our understanding of contemporary art.
