Uneven Geographies; Art and Globalisation


'Uneven Geographies; Art and Globalisation' is the new exhibition at Nottingham Contemporary. It displays the work of 14 artists from 5 continents representing this huge and complicated subject of Globalisation. Where in our world now is so easy to buy thing and not think where it has come from, where people and products can all move so freely its hard to keep track. The exhibition shows this uneven spread of the wealth and harsh manual labour.

'Nobody wants to see: Three of the richest men in the world own as much as six hundred million of the poorest people.'
Mladen Stilinovic, Nobody Wants To See, 2009.

I thought this quote was very powerful and shows this uneven spread of the worlds wealth.

Exhibition: 8 May 2010 - 4 Jul 2010 Nottingham Contemporary, Weekday Cross, Nottingham.
