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

May 6 - Jul 22, 2017
East GalleryNUA is delighted to exhibit work by the ground breaking German artist, Hans-Peter Feldmann.
Feldmann has exhibited in many major art venues worldwide, he was included in the Venice Biennale in 2009 and was awarded the prestigious Hugo Boss Art Prize in 2010.
Hans-Peter is well known for appropriating objects and making astute interventions that are often humorous, and frequently barbed. Copies of old master paintings are revised and don red noses or incongruous tan lines and versions of celebrated sculptures are luridly subverted - Michaelangelo’s David, for example.
