Art Deco By The Sea


Art Deco By The Sea

This celebration of British coastal culture will look at how Art Deco became the seaside style.

From resorts and hotels to cinemas and amusement parks, iconic examples of architecture will reveal how Art Deco altered the look of the British seafront. This exhibition, hosted by the Sainsburys Centre for Visual Arts of over 150 works will also shine a light on interiors and fashion, with striking designs from renowned manufacturers such as Poole Pottery, ECKO radios and Crysède textiles.

A significant group of Art Deco paintings, underpinned by a fashion for realism, will be brought together for the first time. The more ephemeral, popular culture of the seaside will also be featured, to highlight the glamour and accessibility of this much loved style.
