Abstract

Photographic work was exhibited in 'Now for Tomorrow II', Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery, Nottingham, (30 Jan-17 April 2016) This exhibition looked at some of the contemporary art and craft acquired by Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery since 2010. When Nottingham Castle first opened as the Midland Counties Art Museum in 1878, it immediately began collecting art and craft made by artists living and working at that time. Work was drawn together from near and far, including the 1878 Paris Exhibition, for local audiences. What was considered then to be different and ground-breaking is now widely popular. This approach to collecting art has continued. Before any new work is acquired, consideration is given to how it will sit alongside the existing collection. Care is taken to make sure new items fit with those already in the collection although the styles and techniques may differ. Just as in 1878, today’s artists are interested in landscape, the body and the human condition – yet they approach these subjects with new eyes; in different ways. It is interesting to compare this work with that of yesterday.
