Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham (must see)

Nottingham Contemporary (formerly known as the Center for Contemporary Art Nottingham) is a contemporary art center in the Lace Market area of Nottingham. To celebrate the area's history of lace manufacture, the cladding of the building is embossed with a traditional Nottingham lace pattern.

Nottingham Contemporary opened on November 14, 2009 with an exhibition of early works by David Hockney and current works by Los Angeles based artist Frances Stark, some from the Tate collection. Nottingham Contemporary is one of the largest contemporary art spaces in the UK, with four galleries, an auditorium, an education space, a study center, a café-bar and a shop. It organizes four to five major exhibitions a year, bringing the work of the world’s contemporary artists to Nottingham. The ideas raised by the exhibitions are explored in educational activity for all ages. Nottingham Contemporary is on the oldest site in Nottingham, Garners Hill, it once housed cave dwellings, a Saxon fort and a medieval town hall – before the Victorians swept all aside for a railway line.
