Assembly: Exhibition Preview

Please join us for the preview of this ambitious exhibition of 95 artists, many of whom are nationally and internationally recognised. Members of the artist-led group Contemporary British Painting come together from across the UK and Ireland with invited artists from Rye and the surrounding counties.

Assembly is a compelling and timely exhibition curated to reflect a new geography of contemporary art practice as artists shift their focus away from the capital.

Rye is uniquely situated at the mid-point of the creative artery that extends along the South Coast from Brighton to Margate linking important public art institutions, independent, and artist-led venues.

Assembly creates a platform for engagement and dialogue with an exciting range of artists whose creative hunger, and significant and diverse histories of making, animate this exhibition.

Exhibition continues 10am-5pm Thursday – Sunday and by appointment until 18 May
