The People’s Republic of Towner

14 - 29 January 2012 (free)

A co-production between Towner and CRI Lift House, a drug treatment service concerned with the treatment and care of vulnerable adults. Enter a life size ‘dwelling’ constructed in our Exhibition Halls, made almost entirely from recycled materials, and explore a parallel world of ultra violet squats and sofa surfing show homes!


Franziska Furter: stray currents

8 October 2011 - 2 January 2012 (free)

Towner has commissioned Swiss artist Furter to make a series of new conceptual works. Graphite drawings and ephemeral three-dimensional works form an ambitious sculptural installation that fills our whole 400 sq m Exhibition Gallery.


John Piper in Kent & Sussex

2 July – 25 September 2011
