Project Space Restructured - Opening Weekend

Shadow Writing (Lace/Variations)

25 May 2018 - 26 May 2018

 
‘Shadow Writing (Lace/Variations)’ is a new commission by artist and curator Lorenzo Sandoval for Nottingham Contemporary's project space. It presents a space for encounters in a setting made of a modular furniture system that can provide different combinations. It works as a hosting place for meetings, a display system, and a library. The proposal seeks to be embedded with Nottingham Contemporary’s building and the history of the city taking as its departure point the industry of lace, and its relationship with early computation developments with the use of the Jacquard Loom. 
 
The project space will be activated through a dance performance and a series of talks over two days, reflecting on a genealogy of the relationships between work, computation, and reproductive labour and their contemporary articulation. These events are organised in collaboration with Lorenzo Sandoval's Institute of Endotic Research.

Friday 25 - Private View
 
5.30-7pm - Dance performance with Hal Mayer and wine reception, organised with Collabor8 collective.
