Upcoming events for alumni

We are always keen to meet up with our alumni. Your Alumni Community plans a number of special events throughout the year - from open days on campus to networking events both in the UK and
around the world.

Of course, you don't have to wait for us. Why not arrange your own class reunion? We can help you
trace your 'old' friends and give advice on arranging your event. Read news from other events and reunions 
to pick up ideas for your own, and read our tips on planning an event. Send details of forthcoming events to alumni@ntu.ac.uk and we'll promote them here.

C/J: Chloé Maratta and Joanne Robertson
09/01/2019

Curated & Created by NTU - Bonington Gallery

Bonington Gallery is delighted to present C/J, an exhibition of newly commissioned work by Los Angeles-based artist, musician and jewellery designer Chloé Maratta and Glasgow-based artist and musician Joanne Robertson.

Reflecting their shared interests in clothing, both artists have been invited to work with artefacts from Nottingham Trent University’s (NTU) Fashion Map Archive, a unique collection of garments and accessories purchased from high street retailers since 2000.

Maratta embeds her practice into her life via a process of gathering clothing and ephemera that she encounters and experiences on a daily basis. Materials are collaged into styled outfits and extended into photography, photo-collage and sculpture.

Robertson works predominantly with painting that frequently extends beyond the canvas to found objects. Presenting racks of clothing alongside her paintings, Robertson objectifies garments in order to emulate the conditions of abstract painting – form, colour, surface and materiality. She’s currently touring her music in New Zealand, and answered a few questions from Undertheradar.co.nz, in which she refers to the upcoming exhibition here at the gallery, as well as discussing the process of collaborating with other artists, and the strong link between her music and visual practices.

Through art production, music and fashion, both artists convey an immediacy and irreverence towards various forms of cultural and social hierarchy, making the involvement of NTU’s high-street fashion archive all the more poignant.

Exhibition dates: Fri 5 Apr 2019 - Sat 18 May 2019

  • Monday – Friday, 10am – 5pm
  • Saturday, 11am – 3pm

Dick Jewell: Now & Then
08/01/2019

Curated & Created by NTU - Bonington Gallery

Now & Then will be Dick Jewell’s most significant solo exhibition in recent years, bringing together a wide range of works produced over a 30-year period. Working across film, photography and photo-collage, Jewell has inhabited both gallery and commercial contexts, exhibiting his work internationally at institutions including the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam) and Serpentine Gallery (London), as well as producing music videos and promos for musicians including Neneh Cherry and Massive Attack.

As the title suggests, Now & Then chronicles progression: both from a technological perspective through the shifting media across Jewell’s work, and also in regards to people, as demonstrated in by Jewell re-visiting his seminal 1989 film Headcases (shot on Super 8) whereby he has repeated the same set of questions to the same subjects 30 years on.

Other key works that will be on display include The Box, a huge bank of 200 framed photographs that Jewell took from four TVs over seven days in 1980; Four Thousand Threads, which presents a “Chinese Whispers” version of a Google image search; and an audience participatory work entitled War & Peace, in which visitors are encouraged to take selfies against a backdrop and disseminate them online.

In a world bombarding us with millions of images, Now & Then is just presenting a few thousand.

Exhibition Preview

Join us on Thursday 17 January from 5 pm to 7 pm for the Exhibition Preview of Dick Jewell: Now & Then, before it opens to the public on Friday 18 January.

The preview is open to staff, students and the general public, please RSVP to confirm your attendance.

General Exhibition Opening Times

  • Monday – Friday: 10am – 5pm
  • Saturday: 11am – 3pm
