The Attic is an exhibition space within One Thoresby Street, a studio and gallery complex based in Nottingham.
Over the next two years, the Attic will host an exhibition and events programme that critically contributes to the development of One Thoresby Street studio artists, by situating itself within a national and international dialogue of contemporary art.
To support the development of the artists, curators, producers and writers who work within One Thoresby Street, the Attic looks outside of itself by bringing people to Nottingham to exhibit, discuss, create and critique what takes place both within it and within a wider national and international context of artist-led galleries and projects.
Since 2009 the Attic has been run collectively by members of One Thoresby Street. In January 2013 One Thoresby Street appointed Candice Jacobs as the new Attic Programmer who is currently working on a two year programme of exhibitions and events.
Candice Jacobs' research explores the relationship between repetition, labour, futility, boredom, meaning and value and how these elements exist within our everyday lives by looking at advertising, the television, the internet and the workplace.
For the Attic, Jacobs intends to continue to develop these ideas further whilst combining them with a curatorial narrative that aligns itself to the interests of the One Thoresby Street organisation and its members.
Overlooking Sneinton Windmill, One Thoresby Street is located in the heart of Nottingham's new Creative Quarter. Voted as one of the "Best Secret Galleries In The World" by The Independent newspaper in 2012, One Thoresby Street continues to exist both outside and inside Nottingham's contemporary art scene.
