‘THATCHER’


At ESPS in April 2013 the students from the BA course in Illustration at the University of Brighton put up a show of their work. They were asked to respond to the theme of Margaret Thatcher (this being the week of her funeral) using found ephemera and working with collage.

The students came up with an eclectic response to the brief with work that included humour, political angst and some surreal manifestations of Thatcher's  influence on modern political and social history. There were also lectures by Peter Quinnell and Martin O'Neill, both Hastings based Illustrators and the whole event was organised by Paul Burgess and Jim Stoten from the University of Brighton.

Broken Roads and Shrinking Magic


Hermione Allsopp and Joe Packer






















This exhibition brings together the work of two artists, whose work, whilst being distinctly different; contain some areas of common ground. Both the paintings of Joe Packer, and the sculptures of Hermione Allsopp, are works that evolve through an intuitive making process.  From sharing a studio the work has developed a natural conversation, this exhibition is an attempt to explore the relationship between the work, outside of the studio environment.

Motion In Form

is a series of short exhibitions and performance events by seven artists that predominantly work with analogue film and installation. They will each install a new work, or new composition of works at the Project Space at various points from the months of July through to October 2013.


The remit is purely to explore the sculptural possibilities of film installation within the project space. This will be an opportunity for the artists to experiment with the methodologies and material of celluloid film and projected light, as well as the expanded cinematic qualities of film as performance and form.


A full listing of the artist’s information and event dates will be posted here:  http://motioninform.tumblr.com

A weekend event of artists' film and moving image curated by Niels Post and Sharon Haward                    


Friday 25 April 18.00-21.00 at ESPS

Rotterdam artist Niels Post discusses his artistic practice & curatorial projects followed by a special compilation programme of 'The Rotterdam VHS Festival'. This artists-led event was initiated in 2001 by four artists, including Post & includes a range of work from narrative & mini-documentaries to performance & animation. The festival selection is based on the artists' personal tastes and preferences & is therefore completely unreliable & un-trustworthy.

Saturday 26 April 18.00-21.00 at ESPS

'The Mirrored Edge' is an intervention of artists' video & sound works curated by Hastings artist Sharon Haward. The works reflect artists' impressions & ideas about the tensions between utopia, a place where an instinctive harmony between humanity, nature & the environment exists, and dystopia, where a dehumanised society exists under the thumb of corporate uniformity, environmental disaster & a decline in society.


www.sharonhaward.com


All events are free – refreshments available


Info: +44(0)788 144 1120   c.gist@btinternet.com


The artists' events are initiated by Christine Gist on behalf of Tempo Arts Ltd with the support of The National Lottery through Arts Council England's Grants for the Arts programme, Hastings and St Leonards Foreshore Charitable Trust, Centrum Beeldende Kunst Rotterdam and  Community First through the Community Development Foundation.

'I'm Not Even Trying no. 2'


Jeb Haward lives and works in Hastings. His work explores the problem of image making: what arises and what is it's purpose in the field of drawing or painting? What does it suggest metaphorically and are the pictorial relationships edgy enough to go beyond his expectations and his last attempt?

As If They Existed



During winter 2014/15, to correspond with Turner Contemporary’s spring 2015 exhibition Self, artist and writer Felicity Allen undertook a residency at Turner Contemporary which explored how women’s work in the arts continues to shift ideas about artistic practice and how to record it.


As If They Existed is a new film by Felicity Allen, made with artist Tom Dale. Throughout her residency at Turner Contemporary, Allen painted portraits of influential women working within the arts. The film records the development of the work and the conversations shared between Allen and her sitters.


As If They Existed was commissioned by Turner Contemporary
