British Art Show 7 @ Nottingham

Through paintings, sculpture, installations, video, film, performance, and all points in between, British Art Show 7 explores the ways in which contemporary British art conjures histories. The British Art Show comes to Nottingham first and will be shown at three venues that form a triangle around the city centre – New Art Exchange, Nottingham Castle and Nottingham Contemporary.
