Four works from the Jerwood Collection join over 120 pieces drawn from 9 Sussex museum and gallery collections as well as major loans from across the country for Sussex Modernism: Retreat and Rebellion at Two Temple Place, London (28 January – 23 April 2017). 

This major exhibition, curated by Dr Hope Wolf, examines why radical artists and writers were drawn to the rolling hills, seaside 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. 

Jerwood Collection welcomes loan requests from galleries and museums. For loan requests please contact Lara Wardle (Jerwood Collection Curator) by email:
