The House of Fame Exhibition at Nottingham Contemporary is first class. Contemporary art by its very nature is very hit and miss. Some of it is exciting, other bits bore me to death. This eclectic mix of Max Ernst, Manchester photos, Linder Sterling photo montage,...More

We popped in here to deal with a bit of time before a train - interesting exhibition of Arabic sounds tracks which tackled issues with great humanity. The staff were very helpful and the lovely big lockers useful for the luggage. Only the cafe is...More

Beautiful building, great spaces inside. As befits the modern gallery there is a great shop and cafe. Exhibitions are usually a bit new and exciting

It's free so hey, might as well! The exhibits change frequently but they are interesting to lok at. There is a massive gift shop which I would find useful if I needed something unique for someone.

The Nottingham Contemporary is a small gallery that has some interesting exhibits and a small gift shop.

Some friends and I explored inside on our first day in Nottingham city. So glad that it was free and we spent about an hour inside. There were many short films so we just picked a couple to see. Really nice installations.

It's not a huge gallery, but is easy to get around and allows a decent space for the art to be seen/heard. The current exhibition "From Ear To Eye" is extremely thought-provoking and highly recommended.
