British Art Show 7, in the Days of the Comet, kicked off in Nottingham, where it will stay until early next year before it’s due to make its way London, Glasgow and then Plymouth in September, 2011.
We came across this movie of the opening night, which gives you a glimpse of what to expect from the 39 artists and artist groups, in a show with everything from painting to performance, sculpture to film and video installation and all the points in between.
And the reason for all this hoopla? According to co-curator Lisa Le Feuvre it’s ‘to think a little bit more about contemporary art and a little bit more about how contemporary art operates within the world’. Which is more than enough to get excited about.
