Join us for the opening of two new solo exhibitions by Michael Beutler and Yelena Popova.


Beutler's installations transform spaces with sculptural interventions. Working across genres, he encourages alternative perceptions, opening up new views, and new approaches to the strategies and methods of making art. His works can be understood as reactions to architectural and social structures.

Beutler incorporates industrially manufactured or processed materials, such as paper, metal, wood or plastic, shaping them into large-scale building elements with specially developed tools. He also involves local collaborators in this process. Beutler’s exhibition at Nottingham Contemporary will combine existing works and new elements within a new large scale site-specific installation. It will be the second chapter in his first solo exhibition in the UK, the first chapter runs at Spike Island from 16 April - 19 June 2016.

Drawing on Minimalism and Russian Constructivism, Yelena Popova’s ethereal abstract paintings explore themes of representation and balance, enquiring about the materiality of painting today. Her work also examines the relationship between objects in industrialised and capitalist societies. “I’m not interested in making single objects, but in creating a complex network of facts, fictions, emotions, gestures, materials and images, which could relate to the world outside it,” she explains.
Join the party until 11pm, with live music and DJ sets until late.
