Major new Sussex modernism exhibition opens in London
'Sussex Modernism: Retreat & Rebellion' tells the story of modernist artists, writers and thinkers inspired by the county since the turn of the 20th Century.
A new exhibition charting the influence of Sussex on the modernist movement in Britain and beyond will open its doors to the public in London this weekend.
Sussex Modernism: Retreat & Rebellion opens at Two Temple Place in London from Saturday 28 January until 23 April and is free to attend.
Curated by Dr Hope Wolf, Lecturer in British Modernist Literature at the University of Sussex, the exhibition seeks to explore the life and work of artists, writers and thinkers inspired by, or seeking refuge in, the Sussex landscape in the early and mid-twentieth century.
It also examines how metropolitan and cosmopolitan modernists resisted or critiqued their rural and coastal surroundings.
