Everyday Superstars

Everyday Superstars launches alongside our new exhibition by Hassan Hajjaj to celebrate some of the fantastic people living in our city.





In Hajjaj’s exhibition, a collection called My Rock Stars depicts noted artists, musicians and designers alongside individuals from Hajjaj’s everyday world – people he admires and respects, and chooses to elevate to ‘superstar’ status through his iconic images. With your help, NAE has unearthed the everyday superstars in your lives. At the end of 2018 we asked you to nominate the amazing local people – activists campaigning for social change, supporters of young people, individuals who have accomplished in the face of adversity, or simply amazing talents worthy of recognition.

The results are in! A group of young people selected one nominee to be immortalised by Hajjaj through a uniquely styled photoshoot. Their resulting portrait is revealed in Hajjaj’s show. The remaining nominees were invited to feature in our Central Gallery. Their own portraits, taken by local photographer, Richard Chung against the backdrop of Hyson Green, are displayed alongside their stories. Come and explore the everyday superstars that make our city shine, and add your own suggestions to our growing wall of fame.

Join us for a special event to celebrate and recognise our superstars on Thursday 18 April, 6pm-8pm.
