Nottingham Art Map Launches

A new website has just launched to highlight the remarkable art on show in Nottingham - It lists 18 key and influential venues around the city which range from the large public spaces, such as Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham Castle and New Art exchange, through artist lead exhibition spaces, to private galleries and smaller venues.

An initiative by Bonington Gallery and supported by Nottingham Trent University, it gives each venue control of what they list, so should be very up to date.  If you take a look at the moment (September) you will see that many of the space are hosting the New Contemporaries.

There is a map, description of each exhibition space and directions to reach them.

Nottingham clearly has a remarkable contemporary cultural network and punches above its weight in this area - unsurprisingly Bonington Gallery, Nottingham Trent and its city partners have put together a clean, sophisticated and most importantly, useful, listings site which should be in your bookmarks from now on.  You don't have to go to London all the time!!  Many exhibitions start in Nottingham and THEN tour to London - the last British art show and the current New Contemporaries being key examples.
