In Conversation: Mahtab Hussain and Melanie Kidd

30 January 2015, 7pm - 8pm

Performance Space (Second Floor)

Mahtab Hussain's practice seeks to challenge the prevailing concepts of multiculturalism and his new exhibition, The Commonality of Strangers, has been produced through an in-depth residency spent in and around NAE's local neighbourhood. The collection beautifully documents the diversity of the communities that reside here in Hyson Green at this moment in time. However, it also creates a compelling portrait of displacement, revealing the truths of the migrant experience and the reality of living in a multi-cultural pocket of the UK through the voices of the newly arrived and longstanding residents.
