NN has been awarded £55000 by Arts Council England for the year-long Medium Project through Grants for the Arts. Arts Council England invest money from government and the National Lottery in arts and culture across England. It is their mission to make great art and culture accessible to everyone.
Thanks to this grant, NN Contemporary Art are pleased to present The Medium Project, which is a series of international exhibitions and multi-disciplinary events in Northampton. The first exhibition in the series is a solo show of new paintings by Claire Jarvis, which opens on 11 March 2016 at 6pm. Other exhibitions in the project include the third installment of Boom Bang in spring, a show about DNA to celebrate Francis Crick’s centenary and in autumn an installation by art collective FREEE.
The support of Arts Council England directly funds NN’s artistic programme. This grant and together with NN’s other supporters, The University of Northampton, Northampton Borough Council, Northamptonshire Community Foundation and Northamptonshire County Council, enables NN to develop its creative activities, increase participation and reach new audiences whilst maintaining free admission to its exhibitions and commitment to working with artists at all stages of their careers.
