Nottingham Contemporary

Nottingham Contemporary is an art gallery in the Lace Market and features exhibitions on contemporary art and culture. Built in 2009, the building features a 19th-century lace pattern by Richard Birkin embedded in the concrete facade, which was found in a time capsule on the building’s site. At the time of filming Nottingham Stories, the gallery featured an exhibition on British artist Denzil Forrester, whose vivid paintings – “a way of seeing sound” – depict dance halls and the vibrant dub-reggae music scene in 1980s Britain.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on musicians with the restrictions on live performance.
