CAMPUS Fugitive: The Unexpected Beautiful Phrase / Nottingham Contemporary
Saturday, May 4, 12–6pm: Open to the public
Nottingham Contemporary, Weekday Cross, Nottingham, NG1 2GB

The Unexpected Beautiful Phrase is a one-day programme of gatherings and performative moments, exploring modes of learning through ideas of fugitivity and illegibility. Featuring existing and newly commissioned performance, readings,sound and video works this event asks: how can we be fugitive within the constraints of traditional educational models? How can the illegible generate new and disruptive vocabularies? This project is part of the launch programme for CAMPUS—Nottingham Contemporary’s new independent studies programme.

Sturm, Holly Pester, Raju Rage, Rosa Johan Uddoh and Department for International Dance Development (DIDD)

For the Time Being is a programme of live-photo performances using the social media app Snapchat. Exploring the
shifting position of the photographic medium in relation to online image sharing culture, each momentary intervention
will question ideas of nostalgia, collective memory and intimacy as they are experienced through digital networks.
Audiences can engage with the new commissions anywhere in the world on their personal portable devices or visit the
gallery to view the work alongside a programme of live events.

Artists: Agil Abdullayev, Agorama, Max Grau, Tamara Kametani, and Feng Mengbo

House Gallery terrace in Battersea Park. Drawing on the layered architectural and cultural histories of the park and its neighbourhood, the sculptural assemblages will act as urban ‘furniture’ inviting viewers to consider the way they occupy the park, against the backdrop of Battersea’s shifting physical, social and economic environment.

Designer: Sam Jacob Studio 
Curators: Nour Aslam, Caroline Boseley, Keying Chen, Camilla de Fabritiis, Matthew Moehr Griffin, Lin Zhao, and Yuejia Zhou

Re: Over everything which exists under the sky / Gasworks
Thursday May 23–Sunday, May 26, 12–6pm: open studio
Sunday, May 26, 4–6pm: closing event
Gasworks, 155 Vauxhall Street, London SE11 5RH

Re: Over everything which exists under the sky is a temporary, collaborative research studio at Gasworks exploring what it means to be a resident in both the nomadic global art world and the wider geopolitical context of restricted movement and borders. Since October 2018 the curators, alongside invited artists, botanists, astrologers and writers, have been considering mobility from the perspective of non-human, earthly and extra-terrestrial circulations such as plants, birds, planets and stars. The project concludes with an Open Studio presenting the outcomes. 

Contributors: Xinhao Cheng, Helena Hunter, Mati Jhurry, Romy Kießling, Marissa Malik, Niccolò Moronato and Fatima Uzdenova and Belinda Zhawi
Curators: Linnéa Bake, Yalda Bidshahri, Carlie Yixuan Chang, Claudia Contu, Victoria Gyuleva, Jing Jin, and Lika Tarkhan-Mouravi
