Huang Yong Ping at the Nottingham Contemporary

As we were up in Nottingham over the weekend we couldn't resist a quick visit to the Nottingham Contemporary Gallery. This was our first trip to the gallery, as it wasn't around back when we used to live up there as students. Which is a shame, as even though our time was brief it became apparent the gallery is a fantastic cultural hub for Nottingham.

So below are some pictures from the Huang Yong Ping exhibition which is currently showing. One of the biggest artists of his generation, Huang examines how cultures collide in a modern society. Referencing various political, cultural and mythological themes across different societies, his sculptures are made up of these unexpected combinations.

The show runs until the 26th June 2011, so still a fair bit of time to have a visit. Looking through the Gallery's website i can see a lot of great upcoming talks and events, so if you are ever in the area i would recommend having a look. If you want to see more pictures from the Huang Yong Ping show there are more up on Flickr here.
