Looking forward to visiting the latest exhibition at Two Temple Place in London where Sussex Modernism - Retreat and Rebellion has just opened.
Created by the Bulldog Trust in partnership with nine museums and galleries based in Sussex (including Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft, Charleston, De La Warr Pavillion, Towner Art Gallery and Pallant House Gallery) the exhibition examines why artists and writers were drawn to the rolling hills, seaside resorts and villages of Sussex in the first half of the 20th century, creating artistic communities whose innovations developed alongside political, sexual and domestic experimentation.
Curated by Dr Hope Wolf, Lecturer in British Modernist Literature and co-Director of the Centre for Modernist Studies at the University of Sussex, the exhibition runs until 23rd April 2017. Visit the Two Temple Place website for opening times.
