Godfried Donkor: Lace & Slavery

Godfried Donkor: Lace & Slavery was the first instalment of Histories of the Present, Nottingham Contemporary’s year-long pre-opening programme of exhibitions and events, taking place at historical sites in and around Nottingham. Lace & Slavery was a collaborative project by The New Art Exchange and Nottingham Contemporary, and one that grew from Donkor’s 2007-08 artist residency and exhibition at Wollaton Hall’s Yard Gallery.

As part of the contextual framework for Donkor’s project, Nottingham Contemporary programmed the symposium Histories of Slavery, in collaboration with the University of Nottingham Institute for the Study of Slavery, and the lecture series, Culture After Slavery, in partnership with Nottingham Trent University.
