Many of the leading writers, artists, composers, architects and patrons of British Modernism lived in Sussex during key moments of their lives. Led by lecturers in Modernism at the University of Sussex, the course will explore their lives, work, homes and attitudes to the county.
This course is part of Sussex Modern, a celebration of Sussex's rich artistic history led by a partnership of nine museums and galleries from across the county. It launched with the exhibition ‘Sussex Modernism' at Two Temple Place, London (28 January - 23 April 2017).

For many metropolitan modernists, including the poet William Butler Yeats and Ezra Pound, the Sussex countryside provided welcome solace from Europe's culture capitals. We will examine the impact Sussex had on their work and how these rural retreats revitalised their work.
