UKYA City Takeover Launch





UKYA City Takeover: Nottingham 2019
8th February-12th February
Launch Night: 6pm-8pm, Thursday 7th February

We invite you to the launch of UKYA Nottingham at Ace Arts as we welcome artists Hannah Parikh, Herfa Thompson, Morgan Dowdall and Rory Strudwick who playfully experiment with material and colour as an intrinsic element within their work. Sculpture, textiles and contemporary painting will animate our gallery space.

UKYA City Takeover: Nottingham 19 will bring together over 250 national and international artists from 25 countries. Organised by national charity UK Young Artists (UKYA) – who champion the next generation of creativity by supporting and developing the careers of artists aged 18-30 – the first UKYA City Takeover will immerse visitors in an array of extraordinary, innovative and contemporary work. Over seven days, 100 events will take place, including exhibitions, installations and performances, animating cultural spaces and unusual places across Nottingham.

Free Entry: Everyone Welcome

Opening times:
Mon – Sun 10am – 6pm

On the launch night of the City Takeover, we’ve sorted you an ace art trail… why not grab an early viewing of the exhibitions at Bonington Gallery, then Ace Arts, Backlit Gallery, One Thoresby Street, then Surface Gallery, before heading to the official launch party at Metronome…
