Am starting to get a bit of that art-overload, mind-blur that starts creeping up when you’ve seen about three hundred artworks every day for the last four days. The visual information is starting to go in one eye and out the other — a very strange and confusing feeling. Places are starting to blur together and I’m having to reference my photos to remember what happened the morning before. It’s a fantastic though slightly disorienting feeling.
The overall message yesterday: Hastings is Happening! From the quite interesting show on John Carter at the Jerwood Gallery to the opulence of Fairlight Hall to the exquisitely art-deco-ey lines of the De La Warr Pavilion, Hastings has it all! I would absolutely come back — with the kids too! There are super cute parks and amusement centers all along this fish-y community.
Highlights included everything about Fairlight — including the rooftop view, kitchen gardens, incredible lunch with piano recital to follow, and the ART! Cai Guo-Chiang, John Everett Millais, and more!
