Join a member of the De La Warr Pavilion team as they share their perspective on Simon Patterson’s exhibition, Safari: an exhibition as expedition.

The event is free but booked is recommended. It takes place on the ground floor gallery starting at 3pm and should take about 20 to 30 minutes.

Encompassing works from the last 25 years of Simon Patterson’s career, Safari: an exhibition as expedition combines a wide range of artistic mediums with a selection of artifacts from the Hastings and Bexhill Museums’ collections and a performance at sea.

The themes of travel and exploration run through the show and Patterson’s interpretation of them is unique – from his performance entitled Seascape in collaboration with the Bexhill Sailing Club which incorporates coloured smoke grenades in a makeshift ‘sea battle’, to Monkey Business (1993) adorning the gallery walls.
