DATE: Fri 28 Oct 2016 – Fri 9 Dec 2016
TIME: Mon – Fri, 10 am – 5 pm; Sat 12 Nov, 10 am – 3 pm

In what seems like an intensifying atmosphere of global, media-driven expressions of shock, horror, fear and anxiety – how can we use states of crisis in a way to revive the future? Can we harness these acutely painful conditions and represent them in a creative way?
Curated by Something Human and presented in partnership with the Bonington Gallery, Nottingham Trent University and Nottingham Contemporary, Krísis presents an exhibition and events programme of international visual and performance artists, to engage you with multifaceted perspectives on the meaning of ‘crisis’, and its understanding within the current social-political climate.
Through multidisciplinary artworks, performances, and conversations, Krisis explores how these critical conditions can be reclaimed and reconfigured to drive change through artistic practice.
