AMBER RUDD MP WAS SHOWN AROUND HASTINGS CONTEMPORARY’S INAUGRAL EXHIBITIONS BY DIRECTOR LIZ GILMORE.
Amber was very pleased to visit the newly rebranded Hastings Contemporary and learn about the modern art exhibitions on display. Currently on display is world-renowned modern artist Tal R, from Copenhagen, alongside exhibitions of Roy Oxlade’s, David Bomberg’s and Quentin Blake’s works.
Amber visited in order to further promote the gallery, which is an important part of Hastings. The exhibitions are sure to bring in more tourists to Hastings due to the reputations and interest in the artists.
After walking around the gallery Amber commented:
“I would highly recommend people to visit Hastings Contemporary and see these brilliant exhibitions. Having internationally renowned artists show their work here in Hastings is credit to the great work those involved in the gallery have done in recent months. I look forward to hearing about the popularity of the exhibitions grow, which Hastings will certainly benefit from”.
The gallery opened on the 2 July and champions modern and contemporary art in an international context through an ambitious expanded programme and explores all forms of modern and contemporary art, as well as continuing to champion the medium of painting, for which it has built a strong reputation.
Tal R’s exhibition is currently their main exhibition. His exhibition ‘Eventually all museums will be ships’ fits perfectly into Hastings seaside setting.
The gallery also has a wonderful café overlooking the beech and Hastings fleet harbour, which is a perfect location to relax on a summers day.
