A PICTURE OF HYSON GREEN
30 September 2021, 6:30PM – 8:00PM
New Art Exchange
New Art Exchange invites residents of Hyson Green past and present to join us and artist Roger Suckling in reflecting on how the area and community has changed over the past 40 years.
Following a call for members of the public to get in touch with their photographs, memories, and artifacts the event will help to tell the story of Hyson Green's rich history. Over tea and cake, we will share and document the voice and objects that help us to frame our past.
A Picture of Hyson Green responds to the exhibition Self Portraits: Looking Back to 1981 by Roger Suckling. The exhibition comprises of self-portraits taken in June 1981 outside Nottingham Community Arts Centre (NCAC), the site that is now home to New Art Exchange, presenting a snapshot of the community living and working in the area 40 years ago.
Self Portraits: Looking Back to 1981 is open at New Art Exchange 14 August – 9 October 2021.
We've got an open call out for people to get in touch with their own memories and photographs of Hyson Green over the years. Find out more and get involved!
