Arts and Architecture celebrates 150 years

It seems that the University of Brighton Faculty of Arts and Architecture is 150 years old this year. To celebrate they have a whole host of exhibitions and Conferences lined up. To quote the site ...

We will be celebrating the exceptional range of individuals who have contributed to our 150 year history and who provide fascinating examples of the development of a creative educational institution and its contribution to society, culture and industry. Today, based on this rich history, we see a multi-disciplinary, international Faculty offering a range of undergraduate, postgraduate and research opportunities, one which is home to students and staff who will take the Faculty of Arts and Architecture into the future.

Among the things featured in the exhibition will be
  • Works by Turner Prize winners, Antony Gormley, Keith Tyson and Rachel Whiteread.

  • London Transport posters by Clive Gardiner and John Bellany.

  • Watercolours by Dorothy Coke.

  • Illustrations by John Vernon Lord, and Kate Greenaway Medal winners including Emily Gravett, Raymond Briggs and Quentin Blake.

  • Photographs by Magnum photographer Mark Power.

  • Garments by Jerwood Prize winner Caroline Broadhead, Mark Eley and Julien Macdonald.

  • Stamp designs by Andrew Restall and Royal Designer for Industry George Hardie.

  • Promotional material for Deep Purple, the Sex Pistols, Pink Floyd, Fat Boy Slim and Muse.

  • Award-winning dance footage from Liz Aggiss, and Alice Fox’s 2008 Smudged performance at the Tate Modern.
