Sep 28, 2019 - Jan 19, 2020
This autumn sees the launch of a major new commission by Mikhail Karikis that explores the relationship between listening and care. Karikis’ new moving image installation has developed with Project Art Works, an artist-led organisation in Hastings that collaborates with people with complex support needs. Focusing on interactions between carers and non-verbal people who use Project Art Works’ studio spaces, Karikis invites us to pay attention to the sensitive tuning-in of support workers, artists and family members to those they support – a precarious role that is often invisible, misunderstood and undervalued by society.

MARC BAUER : MAL ȆTRE / PERFORMANCE
Feb 1 - Nov 1, 2020
Marc Bauer’s Mal Être / Performance is a new body of work commissioned jointly by Drawing Room and De La Warr Pavilion and is the artist’s first solo exhibition in a UK public gallery.
Bauer’s chosen medium is drawing which he uses here to make small and large scale works on paper, a wall drawing and an animation.
Mal Ȇtre / Performance features the motif of people on boats throughout history, from ancient Greece to contemporary media footage. All of the works are drawn in graphite, and images range from those inspired by fifteenth-century Catholic ex-voto paintings, to Théodore Géricault’s The Raft of the Medusa, up to Aquarius, the boat that rescued migrants in the Mediterranean Sea in 2018. Using the slow and cumulative process of drawing and erasing, Bauer’s project brings the past into the present in his investigation of humanity.

ZADIE XA : CHILD OF MAGOHALMI AND THE ECHOES OF CREATION
Feb 1 - Nov 1, 2020
Showcasing a major new multimedia project, Zadie Xa creates a sub-aquatic marine environment, inviting audiences to enter into an immersive world by way of atmospheric lighting, surround-sound, large-scale video projections, sculptures and costumes.
Xa brings together imagined and learned Korean folklore, transforming diasporic knowledge into new realities. Within her immersive world, she presents an origin story inspired by Korean creation myths, centred on the giant goddess Grandmother Mago (Magohalmi). Exploring the passing down of ancestral knowledge through the matrilineal social structures that are based on the separation of responsibilities between male and female deities in the creation of the universe, the work confronts the goddesses’ shift in cultural status over time, from central to marginal.

LAUREN GODFREY : CLOUDY, PARTNER
Aug 5 - Nov 1, 2020
Cloudy, Partner is a new mural commission by artist Lauren Godfrey for the Rooftop Foyer.
Responding to the architecture of the De La Warr Pavilion, the painted work continues Godfrey’s engagement with the Pavilion and Bexhill beyond the end of her exhibition Group Hat in September 2019. The mural combines structural elements of the Pavilion with a motif inspired by a 1933 embroidered fabric by the Italian designer and architect Gio Ponti, as well as Godfrey’s signature colourful and imaginative style.
Lauren Godfrey’s work spans sculpture, performance, film and printmaking, often in collaborative interactive work. Her reference points – which include hieroglyphs, Seinfeld, Nigella Lawson and Henri Matisse – are both accessible and humorous, creating works that fuse high- and low-brow, past and present, crude and tasteful.
