- To: Friday 8 December 2017, 5 pm
- Location: Bonington Foyer, Bonington Building, Dryden Street, Nottingham, NG1 4GG
MacKillop is a strong supporter of wider independent publishing, demonstrated by her founding of the Artist Self Publishers’ Fair in 2015 at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) in London with fellow artist Dan Mitchell, which has continued as an annual event at ICA.
This vitrine exhibition compliments Sara MacKillop's solo exhibition One Room Living in the Gallery from Friday 3 November – Friday 8 December, whereby she will present a series of works, objects and interactions that make reference to areas within the University that cater for social and recreational activity.
This exhibition is supported by the Elephant Trust.
Join us on Thursday 2 November from 5 pm to 7 pm for the special Preview of Sara MacKillop publications, 2008 - 2017, before the display opens to the public on Friday 3 November.
The preview is open to staff, students and the general public, please RSVP to confirm your attendance.
