talks and workshops around the city.

2 July – 25 September, Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery

Drawn from the internationally renowned collection of prints from the Victoria and

Albert Museum (V&A), Street Art: Contemporary Prints from the V&A showcases

established and emerging street artists, both British and international, including

Nottingham Castle will host a series of events, talks, workshops and satellite exhibitions

exploring contemporary Street Art printing themes and styles to support the main exhibition.

This exhibition is organised by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London

Nottingham Castle has also invited three artists and collaborators

(Amy Blackwell, GING and Smallkid) to respond to the V&A touring exhibition to

create subtle illustrative, print based interventions throughout the unused spaces and

corridors in the Fine Art and Exhibition Galleries.  Each artist will explore both paint

and print, through ‘paste-ups’ and digital techniques, by using the Castle building as

their base, placing their signature styles of character design to live amongst, and react

to, the buildings unique historic ornamental and architectural features and doorways.
