Click to enlargeJANE AUSTEN BY THE SEA
Jun 17, 2017 - Jan 8, 2018
This new display will explore Jane Austen’s relationship with coastal towns, and life in Brighton during her time, to mark the bicentenary of her death. It will look at the seaside context of Austen’s plots and paint a picture of the leading resort of Brighton in the early 1800s, when it was a fashionable ‘watering place’ featured in novels like Pride and Prejudice. Although there is no clear evidence that Austen visited Brighton she included it in several of her works, and the display will reassess her relationship with the town in the light of a long-term misunderstanding arising from a hand-written 1799 letter

MUSEUM OF TRANSOLOGY

LAURA FORD : A KING'S APPETITE
Sep 30 - Nov 5, 2017
British artist Laura Ford has been commissioned by HOUSE Biennial in partnership with Brighton Museum & Art Gallery.
A King’s Appetite is a new sculptural installation that takes inspiration from Royal Pavilion & Museum Collections including caricatures by James Gillray and George Cruikshank satirising aspects of the life of the Prince Regent, and imagery found in the Willett Collection of pottery and porcelain.
 
Ford’s work is consistently curious about the human condition and wider social and political issues, often mixing the bitter sweet with wit. This new work explores socio-political notions of excess, greed and indulgence and the Imperialist attitudes that they reflect. The resulting imagery looks at fundamental contemporary issues relating to Excess, the theme of this year’s HOUSE Biennial, and its subsequent inequalities, both of the Regency period and of society today.
