BRINK: Caroline Lucas curates the Towner Collection
Due to a recent UK snap general election, we are postponing BRINK: Caroline Lucas curates the Towner Collection. The exhibition will now open on Saturday 14 December 2019 and run until 10 May 2020.
The Ravilious Gallery and Collection Library will reopen as planned on 23 November, with a new display of works by Eric Ravilious, including a series of water colours focusing on Sussex. This exhibition can be seen alongside David Nash: 200 Seasons, a major show of works by which is currently on display at Towner.
Caroline Lucas – politician, cultural advocate and environmental campaigner – has taken on a new challenge this autumn: curating her first ever exhibition for a major UK gallery. Caroline is an active campaigner on a range of issues and has consistently been voted the UK’s most ethical politician. A patron of various arts projects over the years, she currently supports Kollektiv Gallery, ONCA Gallery and Firecracker Theatre Company.
Selecting from the 5000 works in Towner’s permanent Collection, Caroline’s choices reflect and resonate with her passions and interests, from her environmental work, issues of climate change and effects on our landscape, to her love of living in Sussex.
Showing at the same time as David Nash’s 200 Seasons, the will be a dialogue for visitors between the two exhibitions via a shared environmental interest.
