LARA FAVARETTO & WU TSANG
May 20 - Aug 28, 2017 FINAL WEEK
Lara Favaretto’s work explores sculpture as a constant process of creation and destruction. This exhibition, her first major solo show in the UK, brings together a range of works, often kinetic or disappearing, from the last two decades. It will also include a major public art commission: installed on the roof a system of fog machines will produce intermittent clouds of vapour from above the galleries.
 
Wu Tsang’s films, installations, performances and sculptures move between fiction, documentary and activism and are deeply involved with queer activism and underground club culture. Her new film Duilian (2016), a special commission for this exhibition, is a kung-fu love story, shot over the course of a year in Hong Kong.

GIUSEPPE CAMPUZANO'S TRANSVESTITE MACHINE
Aug 1 - 26, 2017 FINAL WEEK
Giuseppe Campuzano’s Transvestite Machine.
Exploring the origin of Transgender practices in Peru.
Join us in our Project Space at Nottingham Contemporary to celebrate an exhibition which addresses issues related to the rich cultural tradition of transgender bodies since pre-Hispanic times and the possibilities of a queer museology.
Discover Giuseppe’s attempt to present a queer counter-reading: a promiscuous, intersectional thinking of history that collected objects, images, documents, press clippings, and appropriated artworks through his first English publication of writings.
