Project Art Works now have the keys of 12 Claremont in Hastings, a new gallery and project space to extend our activities into a more public facing space. This building is a community asset transfer between East Sussex County Council and Heart of Hastings.
Please view Untitled Gallery website here.
Prior to the opening of Untitled Gallery – Project Art Works have launched ‘Untold Stories’ – a community project that seeks to inform and contextualise our new gallery site. We are seeking memories, stories, photographs and artworks that might provide insights into this town centre space and the people, occupancies and identities that preceded us. This blog documents a collection of creative responses, memories, stories, photographs and artwork that give insight into the unique identities and connections people have with the Trinity Triangle area.
Contributions to this project will feature in a one-off publication and Project Art Works will make a selection from submissions made before Monday 16th November to feature in a new Gallery window installation.
If you would like to take part, please click here.
Please contact [email protected] if you would like more information about the project.
Heart of Hastings plan to renovate the building into an explicitly inclusive, creative and affordable neighbourhood hub for living, working and community action. In partnership with Heart of Hastings, Project Art Works will open the ground floor of this building as a gallery and project space.
How to find 12 Claremont:
While the building is awaiting renovation, Project Art Works have been installing a series of exhibitions using the space in the window. The window exhibitions have presented works from the extensive archive and have showcased current projects and programming.
Currently presented in the window space, are two large drawings from a selection of over 20 works that were created during Illuminating the Wilderness, an installation, exhibition and residency at Tate Liverpool in 2019
