Following the success of a UK screening tour, we transform Sudden Beams 2: Extraction into an immersive exhibition of sound, live performance and, moving image works in central Nottingham. Working with our new partners Near Now, Broadway Cinema and OTOKA, we extend the audiovisual experience of Extraction into a two-week exhibition between 18-28 May.

Extraction proposes fresh visions of humanity and ecology through Asian-inspired science fiction and mythology. The exhibition presents 10 groundbreaking artists’ film and video and sound works by international and UK South Asian artists, including: Anum Awan & Beast Nest, Fileona Dkhar, Daniel Asadi Faezi & Mila Zhluktenko, Mani Kambo, Subash Thebe Limbu, Bishwadhan Rai, Afrah Shafiq, Chooc Ly Tan & Leïla Arenou, Saphy Vong and Saraab (Shahana Rajani & Omer Wasim).
