Sussex Modernism: Retreat and Rebellion at Two Temple Place

Explore the reasons that artists and writers flocked to the hills, seaside resorts, and quaint villages of Sussex in the first half of the 20th century.

28 January 2017 | Visit website | Book tickets

Sussex Modernism 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 often paired with political, sexual and domestic experimentation. The exhibition is curated by Dr Hope Wolf, Lecturer in British Modernist Literature and co-Director of the Centre for Modernist Studies at the University of Sussex.

Sussex Modernism: Retreat and Rebellion will run between 28th January 2017 - 23rd April 2017 at Two Temple Palace. For more information see their website.
