Towner Eastbourne 15/10/2022 - 22/01/2023

Brewers Towner International will take place at Towner Eastbourne from 15 October 2022 to 22 January 2023. A short list of artists have been selected by an esteemed panel including Turner Prize winning artist Elizabeth Price, Sepake Angiama (Artistic Director, Iniva) and Noelle Collins (Exhibitions & Offsite Curator, Towner Eastbourne).

The exhibition explores the theme of SANCTUARY; which can be interpreted as a physical space, a place offering safe haven, asylum or refuge; it can be understood as an area or environment where endangered species are protected, diverse ecosystems flourish and wildlife is preserved; it can also suggest a space of the imagination, a meditative mental space of solace and respite from the exterior world.
