Portalis – Exhibition PreviewPast, Event Thu 30 Mar, 6pm–8pm
Join us for a complimentary drink* and preview of Portalis – a new exhibition presenting six artists’ concepts of the cave, reflecting on personal experiences, memories and associations.
In many cultures and traditions, caves are portals to the underworld, places of mystery and discovery - sacred places to explore and connect the inner self to the earth. Cave thresholds symbolise the unknown, the mysterious and the mystical.
Portalis presents six artists’ concepts of the cave, reflecting on personal experiences, memories and associations. The exhibition spans five portal themes: inner self, transformation, spirituality, the underworld and adventure.
This is an annual collaboration between Nottingham Contemporary and Nottingham Trent University, where Post and Undergraduate students join their disciplines of Fine Art, Interior Architecture, Photography and Graphic Design to research, produce and document a new exhibition. This year, students responded to the exhibition Hollow Earth: Art, Caves and The Subterranean Imagery.
Exhibition open Fri 31 Mar – Sun 2 Apr 2023.
