I attended a short talk by Jennie Syson on The British Art Show Fringe 2010. The following is taken from the Nottingham Visual Arts magazine, newsletter and website she has set up
With the launch of Nottingham Contemporary later in the year, and with the British Art Show launching here in 2010, Nottingham will be under the visual art spotlight more than ever before with many well-known household name artists engaging with Nottingham audiences, and the magazine website will be on hand to see how the city rises to the challenge.
The British Art Show will take place in October 2010. The British Art Show Fringe will start at the beginning of September and run through until the end of November. It will not be curated and will be an opportunity for artist led groups in Nottingham to do….whatever. Groups from outside Nottingham can also be involved so long as the event takes place in Nottingham.
The meeting was hosted by Moot Gallery and there was a good crowd of people there. Finally there is more Lincolnshire presence…with Amelia there, she, Alan and Anneka are working at full steam setting up interesting projects. They have three on the go at the moment:
It was good to see Charlie there Charlotte Pratley– Beacon intern and part of Backlit She has a show coming up at Backlit on 22 October and is working hard for that. She was also full of lovely stories from her recent trip to India.
She said she had just got some ‘feet’ implanted into her stomach…
now that sounds useful I thought….
