Art Explora Mobile Museum

Sutton in Ashfield

Ashfield residents were able to view famous works of art in Sutton in Ashfield, as part of a free mobile museum tour across the UK. 

The district was chosen as one of the places for the Art Explora Mobile Museum to visit, as part of a 12-week tour with Tate and MuMo.

The mobile museum had a unique trailer designed by French designer Matali Crasset, and hosted the exhibition - Soup, Socks and Spiders! Art of the Everyday.

The exhibition included paintings, drawings, photographs, prints, film, digital art, and sculpture by artists including Andy Warhol, Cornelia Parker, Damien Hirst, David Hockney, Dorothea Tanning, Fernand Léger, Nam June Paik, Phyllida Barlow, Roy Lichtenstein, Vanessa Bell, and Wolfgang Tillmans.

During the week schools and community groups received guided tours of the exhibitions and workshops hosted by the Mobile Museum team.

As part of this unique tour, Ashfield District Council hosted a free event in Sutton in Ashfield to view the exhibition and visitors took part in creative workshops, participated in arts and crafts, and listened to music by Inspire’s Red Hot Band.
