James Webb at Djanogly Art Gallery

'Prayer: Nottingham' is a sound installation produced for the Djanogly Art Gallery at the University of Nottingham by Cape Town artist James Webb. It consists of over 45 recordings of prayers from different faith groups from the city of Nottingham, creating a rich aural tapestry of each religion's hopes, desires and entreaties.

'Life Less Ordinary' considers fictions of categorization and difference - be it the idea of race, nationhood, ethnicity, sexuality, religion or belonging -explored by a range of contemporary artists from South Africa.

This exhibition brings together works of photography, performance, film and installation by a younger generation wishing to shake loose from the epic narrative of race to play with, stage, transcend, celebrate and deconstruct more complex and nuanced subjectivities.

Artists include Pieter Hugo, Zanele Muholi, Nandipha Mntambo, Steven Cohen, Dineo Bopape, Berni Searle and Andrew Putter.
