The recent devastation of Hastings Pier will cast a poignant light on an exhibition opening in Hastings Town Centre in November. Arcadia is a long-planned installation by St. Leonard’s artist, Danny Pockets, exploring the glory and vulnerability of the pier and examines its social and physical architecture. The work is the winning submission to the new Sussex Coast College Art Prize, which is run by Sussex Coast College Hastings with support from the Jerwood Foundation. The show is under construction in the Circle Gallery at Sussex Coast College Hastings. Arcadia launches with a private viewing on 5thNovember and will be open to the public from Monday 8th November.
