The Space, Nottingham Contemporary

AFTERMATH 2094 is an interactive exhibition exploring the cost of technology on the environment, stages of climate disaster, ambiguity of memory, performing digital popstars, and immersive sculptures.

This is collaboration between Nottingham Trent University’s first year Fine Art Masters students and Masters students in Graphic Design, Interior Architecture, and Photography.

With guidance from the team at Nottingham Contemporary, the group researched and interpreted themes in Our Silver City 2094 to create a new exhibition influenced by the hope, humour and thoughts of past, present and future worlds.

Through new art, you are invited to look closely at the world as it is and to consider what the near future will look like.

Aftermath is an annual collaborative placement project between Nottingham Contemporary and Nottingham Trent University. Postgraduate students work together to produce, design, create and document a new art exhibition. This project gives students the experience of working within a diverse team, sharing ideas, peer-learning and professional experience of working within a visual arts organisation.
