Jerwood gallery's 2016 programme which includes a crowd-sourced John Bratby exhibition, new work from contemporary artist Marcus Harvey, Picasso in the UK, focused explorations of Prunella Clough, John Piper and Sir Stanley Spencer, plus a unique collaboration with the Ingram Collection.
Marcus Harvey's summer exhibition, Inselaffe,will centre around Harvey's most recent work in ceramics whichforges motifs and emblems of Britishness, such as military memorabilia and joke shop knick-knacks into collaged portraits of historical figures - from Nelson to Margaret Thatcher and from Napoleon to Tony Blair.
?Inselaffe? is a German word meaning ?Island Monkeys? and is used, perhaps derogatively but mostly light heartedly, to describe the people of England. It derives from a tongue in cheek theory that evolution must have stalled in the UK, as British people behave in such a yobbish manner.
This exhibition forms part of Hastings? Root 1066 Festival and runs from (16 July ? 16 October 2016).
