Abstract

Re-unpacking is an exhibition at Nottingham Castle that explores 6 artists who re-engage with their historical (pre-20th century) precursors, by looking at how they utilise, transform and re-imagine specific artworks from a previous artistic era. The show is curated by Andrew Bracey to complement his solo exhibition ReconFigure Paintings (6 December 2014 to 17 January 2015) in the Long Gallery upstairs, creating further conversations and lineages between contemporary and historical artists. Re-unpacking seeks to explore how artists are continually learning from the art of the past, mining it for inspiration in order to put something new back into the world – to show how (familiar) historic. The artists were Tom Butler, Tim Dunbar, Tracey Eastham, Henrietta Simson, Annabel Tilley and Jenny Wiener. The artists work was housed in vitrines made by the artists collective MOOT in the cafe space of Nottingham Castle.
