Sussex Modernism

Two Temple Place, London


Retreat and Rebellion

This major exhibition 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 draws on renowned collections including those of the Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, Pallant House Gallery in Chichester and Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne. Find out more about the ‘Sussex Modernism’ exhibition from Two Temple Place’s website.
