Sussex Modernism: Retreat and Rebellion examined why modernists were drawn to Sussex in the first half of the 20th century and how, in the communities they created, artistic innovation ran hand in-hand with political, sexual and domestic experimentation.

Sussex Modernism was created by the Bulldog Trust in partnership with 9 Sussex museums and galleries: Charleston, Farleys House and Gallery, West Dean College, the De La Warr Pavilion, Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, Ditchling Museum of Art & Craft, Jerwood Gallery in Hastings, Pallant House Gallery in Chichester and Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne.

The exhibition was curated by Dr Hope Wolf.
