There are a host of exhibitions to explore on site and online in 2023.
Fair Ground 2023 (11 November – 18 December)
Tessa Moldan, At the Water’s Edge, 2023, acrylic on wood panel, 22 x 37 cm
Fair Ground is our annual group exhibition of new and affordable work by Sussex artists. The title is taken from a musical stanza in Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem, Sussex, in which he describes the county as ‘beloved over all’. A hymn to the beauty of place, Kipling saw his enchantment with Sussex as deeply rooted in an understanding of locality, a belief that the cottages, hedgerows, green rolling hills, seafronts, hidden coves and woodlands were all integral part of connecting real people to their historical pasts. Each of the selected works in Fair Ground speak to this idea of myth and memory, continuing to mark Sussex as a place of visual poetry. This year the exhibition returns with work by 22 artists from across the county.
Teaching Artist Residency Exhibition (11 November – 18 December)
With works made in response to their three-month residency at Glyndebourne, visit this year’s Teaching Artist exhibition with work by Tessa Moldan, Mair Park and Ash Stewart.
Each summer Glyndebourne and the University of Brighton collaborate to offer an artist residency to students on the PGCE Art & Design programme. The selected students are granted exclusive access to Glyndebourne’s performance, rehearsal rooms, grounds, archive and staff and are invited to create artwork in response to their experiences. The residency gives students a chance to create work as an artist, free from expectations and to take the knowledge and confidence gained in the residency forward into their teaching careers.
Explore their work and read more about the residency programme in this temporary exhibition, on view in our Archive Gallery for all ticket holders and by appointment.
