Nottingham Contemporary presents a major retrospective of the late British artist Donald Rodney (b.1961, UK; d.1998, UK). Bringing together all that survives of his work across painting, drawing, installation, sculpture and digital media with rare archive materials, the exhibition highlights Rodney's significance to the recent history of British art. Though Rodney has had a perennial influence on the wider UK artist community, there have been few opportunities to experience the full breadth and complexity of his work. This touring exhibition will highlight the significance of Rodney's work and re-address themes of racial identity, chronic illness, Black masculinity and Britain's colonial past.
The exhibition is presented in partnership with Spike Island and Whitechapel Gallery, where it will tour during 2024–25.
