It draws upon the special collection and archive at Farley Farm House, at Chiddingly, East Sussex – the former home of photographer Lee Miller and surrealist artist Roland Penrose.

The couple came to live at Farley Farm House in 1949 and in the following 35-years built up a collection of contemporary art treasures.

Many of these were made by their friends and visitors, including Picasso, who visited in 1950. Miller photographed Picasso extensively, in his home and in hers.

Maggie Island

Marcus Harvey: Inselaffe

  • 16 July — 16 October 2016 *on now

Inselaffe, will centre around Harvey's most recent work in ceramics which forges motifs and emblems of Britishness, such as military memorabilia and joke shop knick-knacks into collaged portraits of historical figures - from Nelson to Margaret Thatcher and from Napoleon to Tony Blair.

‘Inselaffe’ is a German word meaning ‘Island Monkeys’ and is used, perhaps derogatively but mostly light heartedly, to describe the people of England. It derives from a tongue in cheek theory that evolution must have stalled in the UK, as British people behave in such a yobbish manner.

This exhibition features tough but humorous sculpture, unapologetic and brash, political yet ambiguous, considered and painterly, and reflects on Harvey's concerns of national identity and masculinity - "It is partly to wrest something from the all-pervading guilt over colonial misdemeanours and in part to ironize an overly romantic valuation of the past. The sentiment seems to be in equal measure irony and affection.”

Part of Hastings’ Root 1066 Festival.

Boy Who Bit Picasso

Antony Penrose: The Boy Who Bit Picasso

  • 30 July 2016 3-4pm

As a child, Antony Penrose first met Pablo Picasso when he visited the Penrose family home of Farley Farm, in Chiddingly, East Sussex in 1950. They became instant friends and invented their own boisterous game of pretend bull fights. In the excitement Antony bit Picasso, and Picasso bit him right back, but it did not spoil the friendship and during the many visits Antony made to Picasso’s homes in France he felt very much at home.

He loved the menagerie of pets – the live ones and those Picasso made as sculptures that seemed alive. Picasso painted Antony’s mother Lee Miller’s portrait six times and she photographed him more than 1,000 times. Her images illustrate Antony’s entertaining and amusing account of life around Picasso.

Antony’s The Boy Who Bit Picasso lecture was originally created for Gloucestershire DFAS and has been performed at the National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. This lecture also covers the process of writing and the design of the book, which has been very favourably reviewed and is a best seller.
