We are so excited for the launch of our latest exhibition here at East Gallery, Richard Sawdon Smith : A Life Lived Through Photography, an artist in residence / archive exploration. 8 August - 9 September.
Disrupting the traditional ‘white cube’ space, it seeks to engage with Sawdon’s own archive of photographic and film work spanning more than three decades.
Richard Sawdon Smith’s art practice takes the form of staged self-portraiture and the body. His photography can best be described as issue-based work – exploring concerns of identity, sexuality, gender, queerness, and masculinity as well as the construction of subjectivity. Over the last 30 years this has primarily been in reference to representation of illness/health.

East Gallery is delighted to offer two opportunities to join Norwich University of the Arts as an East Gallery Fellow – Creative Practice for ten months from November 2023 to September 2024, providing a significant opportunity for creative exchange and experimentation embedded in the pioneering research culture of Norwich University of the Arts.

The Fellows will benefit from pastoral and curatorial support, a generous grant, production expenses, and valuable access to the University’s state of the art facilities including fully equipped workshops, library, technical resources, and academic expertise. The Fellowships are non-prescriptive and focus on supporting creative practitioners to research and develop an innovative practice-based project that will result in a high-quality exhibition at East Gallery.

Deadline for applications: 1 September 2023, 12noon (UK time)

If you've been in to see us recently, you might have seen the incredible work of Emma Niemis at our lastest exhibition with Animated Women UK

Emma Niemis is a London-based freelance fabricator, working mostly in stop motion animation and specialising in puppet and model making. Her personal
work consists of creatures that often blur the divide between human and beast, that are brought to life as poseable soft sculptures.

Rule Britannia: Legacies of Exchange. The Singh Twins, 2018.
As part of the triptych originally commissioned by Royal Collection Trust, you can also explore the vast detail of the artwork via an iPad stationed in the gallery.

Throughout the triptych, objects that were gifted to Albert Edward Prince of Wales symbolise India and the British Empire's history of maritime transportation, facilitating the movement of goods and the heritage of skilled craftsmanship in India.
On display here at East Gallery NUA, entry is included with admission for the first part of the exhibition at Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery (free for Norwich University of the Arts and UEA students).

Rule Britannia: Legacies of Exchange. The Singh Twins, 2018.
Inspired originally by objects in the Royal Collection Trust that were gifted to Edward Albert Prince of Wales during his tour of India in 1875-6, this triptych narrates the historical relationship between India and the British Empire between 1600 and 1947.
Alongside themes of colonialism and enslavement, the works also speak to the many positive cultural contributions of India in British culture.
On display here at East Gallery NUA, entry is included with admission for the first part of the exhibition at Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery (free for NUA and UEA students).

Congratulations to our Norwich University of the Arts graduates 2022 from all of us here at East Gallery NUA!
An amazing achievement for all concerned.

While you’re making your way round Norwich, be sure to pop in and get one of the decision making coins from Ryan Gander’s exhibition “The Gift”. Over the next few years, having a little help deciding whether to pause or take action could be just what you need.
