Nottingham’s international contemporary art gallery is a great architectural find in a historic district.
If you ever happen to be in Nottingham, the city’s major international art gallery Nottingham Contemporary is a must visit building. Over a year into its programme the gallery has been a big success with audience numbers hugely exceeding expectation. The curatorial programme, led by Alex Farquarson, provides a constantly changing series of contemporary exhibitions that often comment on history and society, and feature the foremost of artists of today.
The building was designed by leading architects Caruso St John who also designed the Walsall Art Gallery, Gagosian Gallery and now the new Tate Britain extension. The exterior has an austere quality typical of their design approach and contains four beautifully detailed gallery spaces inside. It’s well worth a visit.
