The Public Programme at Nottingham Contemporary is a platform for the research and critical debate of ideas and practices that are relevant to the Exhibitions that take place here and to contemporary art and its institutions more broadly. It includes lectures, debates, symposia and screening programmes, seminars, reading groups and workshops. The majority of events that take place are recorded and many are live-streamed. Within this area of the website you can browse through past Exhibitions (2008-) as well as a growing Directory of contributing artists, academics, curators and writers and Glossary of contextual ideas, movements or forms of practice relevant to past exhibitions or events. Each entry is linked to material archived on-line - including text documents and audio and video documentation where available. Within this section we also publish occasional Dossiers. These edited collections of material draw from exhibition research and Public Programme events, publishing new writing and new translations alongside selected on-line resources. The Public Programme is realised in collaboration with Nottingham Trent University and the University of Nottingham and this partnership also supports the development of longer term Research Projects & Networks.
