New Art Exchange welcome Sarah Maple to Nottingham, presenting Not My Cup of Tea.

A show of newly commissioned works by award winning artist, Sarah Maple, runner-up of NAE's 2012 exhibition, Culture Cloud.

Maple is known for her bold, brave, mischievous and occasionally controversial artworks that challenge our perceptions of cultural and religious identities. Much of Maple's inspiration originates from being brought up as a Muslim, with parents of mixed religious and cultural backgrounds.

Not My Cup of Tea explores timely questions around integration, the meaning of 'British Values' and the current worldview of Islam. Through satirical humour, the exhibition addresses the sharp rise of xenophobia and Islamaphobia since 2016 as well as how certain communities are othered and alienated in political narratives, thus effecting public opinion.

Supported by Sky Academy Arts Scholarships and Arts Council England.

The exhibition runs 11 August – 1 October 2017

Admission: Free

Age: All are welcome

Address:
New Art Exchange
39 – 41 Gregory Boulevard
Nottingham NG7 6BE
