Nottingham Trent University students have worked alongside Nottingham Contemporary to produce a new collaborative publication – Response 4 – which launched with an online event on Fri 19 Mar 2021.

Responding to the Grace Before Jones: Camera, Disco, Studio and Jimmy Robert: Akimbo exhibitions, this student-led publication explores the themes of identity, expression and rebellion, voicing the students’ own take on these ideas. Commencing in Autumn 2020, the project took place virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the placement students working remotely to write, design and publish this fourth issue of Response.

Selected from a range of courses and guided by Nottingham Contemporary staff, each student brings a unique set of skills and interests. From looking into the lives of Grace Jones and Jimmy Robert, to interviews with local drag queens and emerging visual artists, this publication offers a diverse range of ideas and visual responses that the students hope will inspire more thinking and discussion.
