An exhibition examining how radical artists were drawn to the picturesque county in the first half of the 20th century, exploring how distinct creative communities formed, grounded in artistic innovation that reflected the political, sexual and domestic experimentation of the time.

About

Sussex was home to major artists and collectors such as the Bloomsbury Group in Charleston, Edward James with his surrealist connections at West Dean, Roland Penrose and Lee Miller at Farley Farm House and the arts and craft community of Ditchling that included Eric Gill and David Jones. Drawing on these and other significant collections of modernist art including that of Pallant House Gallery, Towner Art Gallery, Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, De La Warr Pavilion and Jerwood Gallery, the exhibition has been organised by The Bulldog Trust in partnership with nine Sussex museums and galleries and curated by Dr Hope Wolf from the University of Sussex.  www.twotempleplace.org.
