Get’cha Head in the Game is an international group exhibition which explores the relationship between art and sport. From American football, tennis and basketball to skiing, weightlifting and roller derby, the exhibition champions sport and its players through various media.
Featuring work by sports photographers and artists who have been influenced by sport or who incorporate sports iconography into their work, Get’cha Head in the Game ultimately tackles larger cultural topics including politics, gender, race, sexuality and identity.
The exhibition also presents a selection of independent sports publications, with contributions from FRANCHISE magazine, SEASON zine, SPRTS periodical, and Victory Journal.

Moving, critical and fiercely intelligent, Citizen weaves together essays, images and poetry to examine the experience of race and racism in Western society through sharp vignettes of everyday discrimination and prejudice.
The Book Club is an informal Sunday afternoon reading group hosted by the Naughton Gallery, developing conversations around books which link thematically to the exhibitions. Books are available from Blackwell’s in the Students’ Union with discount for Book Club members. For more info contact firstname.lastname@example.org
