Drawing and exploring at Backlit: from 14 September


This is the time of year when Nottingham becomes home to a generation of new students. But in a reclaimed industrial space somewhere else in the city, a group of past students are coming to terms with the next stage of their lives. A new show at Backlit explores the theme of starting all over again and reaching out for something unattainable. Very Holy Grail is a drawing show curated by Katy Cotterell in a gallery that combines exhibition space and artists’ studios.  Backlit was set up last year by a group of Nottingham Trent University graduates. Very Holy Grail, on for the next two weeks, explores looking back – and forward – through the ‘incomplete…provisional’  medium of drawing.
