UKYA City Takeover: Nottingham

UKYA City Takeover comes to Nottingham, 7 - 13 February 2019! It will span the city, immersing visitors in an array of extraordinary, innovative and contemporary work. A key moment in the 2019 calendar, and one of the largest showcases of inter/national artists, UKYA City Takeover promises to be exciting, discerning and unique. 


Uniting over 250 artists working across disciplines of visual arts; applied arts; music; performance; digital arts; literature; moving image - accommodating a global discussion and survey show of art being made today across the United Kingdom alongside artists from China, South Korea, Europe and the Mediterranean.


The identity; economy; place and the obliqueness of things that we encounter whether political; social; artistic, run through the City Takeover. Showing the expansive yet combined intelligence of a generation of artists seeking to respond, react and re-imagine for the future.


There is a wealth of technical skill; personal and altruistic displays of adversity and ambition as well as a playfulness; subtle activism and ongoing desire to remain investigative and experimental in how we use our environments.
