Abstract

Signalling the launch of Not Necessarily in the Right Order, main gallery exhibitors Common Culture join Melanie Kidd, NAE Director of Programmes, for a conversation about this new commission. The piece has been inspired by the many festivals that take place in Nottingham and on NAE's neighbouring Forest Recreational Ground. It seeks to explore the social significance of carnival and festival as one of the few public opportunities to celebrate cultural diversity, signify a demand for recognition and re-imagine cultural identity.
The session provides a detailed introduction to the exhibition and the dynamic practice of Common Culture. The collective exploit a variety of media to explore cultural identity through its construction in ritualistic commodity consumption. They draw upon a range of influences from popular culture (including British comedy and Northern stand-up comedians) to high art.
