Our exhibiting artist, Allison Katz, discusses her practice with Nottingham Contemporary’s director Sam Thorne.

Tracing connections between language and creative practice, Katz explores painting as conversation. In this talk, the artist discusses important literary references in her work, and her painterly attempts to achieve verbal and visual ambiguity.
