Anthony Gormley Comes to Bexhill

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

Another great art event coming close by to Rye this summer.

Artist Anthony Gormley’s Critical Mass, one of his most famous works, is landing on the roof of beautiful cultural venue the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill. You can expect 60 lifesize cast iron bodies looking out on you from above – unsettling stuff!

Highly recommended, and on the roof between 8th May to August 2010. The venue, De La Warr Pavillion, is fast becoming one of the most important arts centres in the south of England – check out their programme at http://www.dlwp.com/

Culture Fix

Quick blog post from us to say that if you’re staying with us up to Mid-March and are an art enthusiast, you must check out an exhibition of the Chapman Brothers’ work, being held at Hastings’ Museum Old Town Hall Art Gallery.

Jake and Dinos Chapman, who stirred up the British art scene in the 1990s and who went to school in Hastings, so their work is coming back home. We won’t pretend to be art critics; if you want an intro to their work, here’s an interview on YouTube from ArtPatrol TV:

This is a great exhibition to have locally, so stop in if you fancy a trip over to hastings. More on the gallery website.
