Assemble and Schools of Tomorrow: The Place We Imagine: Over three years in the making, in summer 2022 Nottingham Contemporary collaborated with the design collective Assemble to bring Lina Bo Bardi’s unrealised vision of a fantastical playground to life. Inspired by the architect’s now-famous drawing, this ambitious project realised a series of large-scale play sculptures, one of which was developed in dialogue with children from three local schools.

Meriem Bennani: Life on the CAPS: Nottingham Contemporary also presented Life on the CAPS, the New York-based Moroccan artist Meriem Bennani’s largest solo exhibition in the UK. Bennani’s acclaimed eight-channel video installation Party on the CAPS (2018–19) was shown for the first time in the UK, alongside its newly commissioned sequel, Bennani’s most ambitious film to date.
