Exhibition Launch: Still I Rise

26 Oct 2018

This autumn, Nottingham Contemporary are launching an exciting new exhibition, Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance.

Join us for the exhibition launch party of Still I Rise; a timely exhibition exploring the role that womxn have played in the history of resistance movements and alternative forms of living. Coinciding with the centenary of womxn’s suffrage in the UK, this major group exhibition looks at resistance across the world from a multiplicity of viewpoints, from the domestic sphere to large-scale uprisings and spanning the late 19th century to the present. Find out more.

You are invited to join us for the launch party where you’ll get to have the first exclusive look at over 100 exhibits by some 40 practitioners, including an incredible live performance by artist, choreographer and Jay-Z’s 4:44 dancer Okwui Okpokwasili, a DJ set from Rabz, and more…

Fri 26 Oct, 6.30-11pm

This exhibition launch is kindly supported by Campari. 

*At all of our exhibition openings we like to give away a limited number of free cocktails; we wish we could give a free drink to everyone, but our complimentary drinks are limited and on first come first serve basis. Make sure you arrive early and remember to collect a drink token at the front entrance if you would like to claim a free drink. If you do arrive later and do not receive a free drink, our café downstairs will be serving tasty food and beverages for you to buy. Nottingham Contemporary is a charity and we do welcome donations.
