Constructed Geographies is a new touring exhibition featuring artists who have created new work in response to Sussex’s diverse heritage and population. Artists include: Amanda Jobson, Judith Ricketts, Josef Cabey, Rikki Tarascas, Akila Richards and Maria Amidu, curated by Amy Zamarripa Solis.

About

The broad theme of the exhibition allows each artist to approach it from their own perspective and art practice – including photography, painting, sculpture, video, digital and performance – to explore the rich cultural heritage of the area and draw out stories from a range of communities.

The exhibition seeks to claim a space for the hidden diversity in Sussex. From the remains of an ancient African women found on Beachy Head to local histories in the African hairdresser in Eastbourne, the exhibition works to dispel the misconception that there is a lack of diversity in the region. You just need to know where to look.

Supported by Arts Council England Project Grants.
