If you would like to bring a group of visitors to the gallery, including school visits, we may be able to arrange a tour of the exhibition or create and activity for your group.
Tim Davies’ film and video works often feature a performer, usually the artist himself, negotiating his way through the built environment. The human body becomes the means by which to explore the spatial and social aspects of architecture. This exhibition includes a new film made in response to Norwich – reflecting the city’s historic context and its cultural and architectural specificity. Within will be open to the public from Thursday 24 April until Saturday 24 May.
Not only is The Gallery at NUA an important touring venue for national and international exhibitions, it also provides students with valuable experience in installation and curation.
