Explore the imaginary of the deep ocean: Aquatopia art gallery exhibition

Join us for an afternoon exploring the ocean deep at Nottingham Contemporary Art Gallery! This gallery is one of the largest contemporary galleries in the UK.

This major exhibition brings together over 150 contemporary and historic artworks that explore how the deep has been imagined through time and across cultures. Sea monsters, sirens, sperm whales, giant squids, octopi, submarines, drowned sailors and shipwrecks are all portrayed here by many of art history’s “greats”.

This is suitable for adults and children - for those that like art and being creative and using their imagination. This kind of thing is really good for kids .. a learning activity that helps them to open their mind and use their imagination, to focus and analyse and learn and be creative.

We will stay on for a nice cup of tea and the contemporary cafe afterwards.

The website with details of Aquatopia can be found here:

It is free to enter.

The address is:
Weekday Cross
Nottingham, Nottinghamshire County NG1 2GB

How to get there:
Nottingham Contemporary is right next to the Lace Market Tram Stop, five minutes from Nottingham Railway Station and the Green NCT bus routes. And only a few minutes’ walk from the city’s shops and Broadmarsh Centre. See the website for more details.

We haven't been before, but assume there is a reception area so we will meet there at 2pm. The gallery is open until 5pm and the cafe is open until 7pm.

Hope to see you there, cheer and regards, Tasha & Joshua xx
