At Two Temple Place in London: Sussex Modernism: Retreat and Rebellion

This exhibition at at Two Temple Place in London, examines why radical artists and writers were drawn to the rolling hills, seaside resorts, and quaint villages of Sussex in the first half of the 20th century and how, in the communities they created, artistic innovation ran hand in-hand with political, sexual and domestic experimentation.

Through over 120 works, the exhibition discovers intriguing connections between these enclaves of artists and the modernisms they represented.

The exhibition is draws on significant collections of modernist art including those of Towner Art Gallery, Jerwood Gallery, Pallant House Gallery, Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, De La Warr Pavilion, Charleston, Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft, West Dean College and Farleys House and Gallery, and has been organised by The Bulldog Trust (based at Two Temple Place, London) and curated by Dr Hope Wolf from the University of Sussex.
