For the first time in many decades a wide range of Max Gill's extraordinary works will be brought together through a pioneering exhibition at the University of Brighton Gallery in Summer 2011. Hosted by the University's Faculty of Arts, it will display decorative maps and other selected material. Open to the public from 22 July, this rich and absorbing visual panorama will provide a long overdue opportunity to rediscover and appreciate the work of a remarkable, influential and multi-talented artist, designer and architect of the first half of the twentieth century. An important one-day symposium, drawing on a wide range of personal, professional and historical expertise in the field, will be held on 22 July to coincide with the opening of the exhibition. This will provide an opportunity to share, promote and encourage research and scholarly activity about Max Gill and his work. Enquiries about the exhibition and the symposium should be addressed to: Madeleine Meadows, m.j.meadows@brighton.ac.uk / 01273 643720
