Current Exhibitions

Warhol Is Here
24 September 2011 - 26 February 2011

Warhol is Here will present and explore the work of Andy Warhol in the context of his beliefs, lifestyle and above all, his legacy for the 21st century.

The Pavilion is delighted to announce that one of Warhol’s most important works the Marilyn Diptych (1962), will be part of the exhibition. The painting, made in 1962, shortly after the actress’ death, comprises two canvasses, each containing 25 silkscreened repetitions of the image of Marilyn Monroe first used as a publicity photograph taken for her role in the film Niagra. It is considered to be one of the world’s most important pieces of contemporary art and was created at a time when Warhol was moving from being a commercial artist and establishing his reputation as a fine artist.

Other iconic works included in the exhibition will include prints from the Campbell’s Soup series (1968), a group of Brillo Boxes (1968) and portrait paintings including Gilbert & George (1975), Joseph Beuys (1980) and Robert Mapplethorpe (1983). There are drawings from as early as the 1940s, stitched photographs, Polaroid self po... [ Read all ]

Forthcoming Exhibitions

Cerith Wyn Evans
17 March – 10 June 2012

Using Cerith Wyn Evan’s ongoing investigation of architecture as a starting point, and specifically curated as a response to the De La Warr Pavilion, the exhibition will consist of three major installations and smaller new works dispersed throughout the building. Taking the entire Pavilion as an opportunity for installation, including our two gallery spaces and the roof-terrace, the exhibition will provide the impetus for a wider programme of related live art, music, performance and film.

The artist will strip back the Pavilion’s gallery spaces so that they are for the first time undivided. With all windows revealed, the installation explores the relationship between manmade and natural light and returns the building’s structure to its original purpose – as a space for visitors to experience and enjoy. Described by the artist as “a love letter to the building”, the exhibition will embody many recurrent themes within Evan’s art: including code, language, text and an interrogation of aesthetics.

On the rooftop will be a new text firework installation.

Previous Exhibitions

Oct 17 2009 - Jan 3 2010

Mind into Matter
Eight Exemplary Buildings 1834 - 2009

Selected at intervals of 25 years since the foundation of the Royal Institute of British Architecture, eight buildings explore what architects at different periods thought they were doing. Each project has an intriguing story of patronage, revealing the motives that have caused exceptional buildings to come into being for symbolic as well as practical reasons. In each case the architects have held a passionate commitment to a particular way of designing and building.

Using original drawings, specially commissioned new photography and other documents, old and new, the exhibition will make Victorian and Modern architecture accessible to new audiences through the stories it tells.

Sons of Pioneers
Matthew Houlding

Houlding's new sculptures and collages are an homage to the utopian zeal of modern architecture and Hockney’s Bigger Splash painting.

Drawing on Structuralist and Formalist ideas of architectural design and the relationships between intersecting materials and planes, contrasting geometry is framed by bold, primar... [ Read all ]
