What is Diversion?

screen-shot-2017-01-26-at-13-44-28The forthcoming now-open exhibition at Gallery North, Hailsham, promises to be as controversial as the subject it addresses.
The exhibition’s curator, Julie Ford, writes:

‘Diversion’ will explore artists’ reactions to the current transformation of the High Street, Hailsham, a project begun in late summer, 2016, and scheduled to end sometime in the spring of 2017. The scale of a production requiring removal of the road surface, kerbing, portions of sidewalks and reshaping and recovering the High Street and connecting George Street is matched only by a similar dismantling of nearby North Street in 2007 to make way for a Tesco superstore and car park.

‘Diversion’ derives its name from the signs directing pedestrians and motorists through a maze of barriers and fencing bordering both the High Street and George Street.

‘Diversion’ at Gallery North opens February 4 and runs to March 18

Christmas/New Year Closing

The most recent exhibition ended on Saturday December 17th.

The gallery is now closed throughout January and will re-open in February with DIVERSION, an exhibition specially curated by Julie Ford.

‘Diversion’ will open on 4 February and run until 18 March.
