Entry included in your admission ticket
Join Art & Design students from East Sussex College, Eastbourne for this pop up exhibition responding to the themes of collaboration and exchange in our current exhibition, Shōji Hamada: A Japanese Potter in Ditchling.
Over the course of 6 weeks, the students and staff worked with the DMAC team to create the pop-up exhibition for our Clore Learning Space.
Following a tour of the exhibition by Director Steph Fuller, the students undertook research and visual exploration around the objects on display. They then developed pitches for their work, which they pitched to the team at the museum.
The students went on to install their own work with guidance and support from East Sussex College and Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft staff, giving them the experience of planning and producing an exhibition of art and design work from start to finish.
The result is a vibrant and contemporary response to the work of Shōji Hamada.
The show will be open from 10:30am-5pm on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th March with staff and students from the college invigilating.
