Sir Quentin Blake returns to Hastings Contemporary with a prophetic show of new drawings, paintings, and a large-scale mural he has described as ‘his Guernica’, as raw, original and unlikely as anything he has produced in his eight decades of artistic creativity.
On this sunny Monday we would like to give a big shoutout to our volunteers and front of house staff who will be back to welcome back our visitors this week.

Jake & Dinos Chapman: In the Realm of the Unmentionable exhibition in Autumn 2014 was a major, must-see exhibition of work by @jakeanddinos
"In the Realm of the Unmentionable" presented a new, previously unseen body of work by the Brothers Grimm of the art world and featured works commissioned exclusively for this exhibition.
Jake and Dinos’s work is concerned with consumer culture, mortality, morality, religion and horror. Their influences are broad, from Francisco Goya (1746-1828) and George Bataille (1897-1962), to Surrealism, philosophy, psychology and the Holocaust. This exceptional body of work involved a vast range of art forms, through which Jake and Dinos Chapman engaged with fundamental questions about what it is to be human.
Reusable, tie-on face coverings made in St Leonards by a local seamstress Phoebe Brown, are now available from our online shop.
These face coverings are made from double layered 100% cotton fabric. They feature an integral filter pocket (filter not included) and are made with a tailored fit that comes snugly under the chin. They are secured with ties for a better fit to the individual which means you are less likely to touch the front of the mask when putting it on or taking it off.
Hygienically packaged, washable and re-usable, these face coverings are available in men's and women's sizes in a variety of colour and patterns.
Please visit bit.ly/FaceCoveringsbyPhoebeBrown for more designs and to find out more.
