Corita Kent: Get With The Action
5 May 2018 - 2 September 2018
The ground-breaking work of Sister Corita Kent (1918-1986) comes to Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft this summer. Corita was an artist and famously charismatic educator whose work reflected her concerns about poverty, racism and war – anxieties that continue to resonate today. A contemporary of Andy Warhol and Ed Ruscha, her vibrant serigraphs, banners and posters drew on pop culture, literary and modern consumer cultures and were regularly to be seen at civil rights and anti-war rallies in the 1960s and 70s.
