Hastings Contemporary

Hastings Contemporary launched in July 2019 when we moved away from being Jerwood Gallery. Hastings Contemporary is a new, independent modern and contemporary art gallery for Hastings, and reflects the town’s independent spirit, drawing on the rich artistic heritage of Hastings and the South East and engages with the town’s growing creative community. Hastings Contemporary’s expanded programme explores all forms of modern and contemporary art, and continues to champion the medium of painting, for which it has built a strong reputation.

The building designed by HAT Projects, is a sensitive response to its context of the fishing beach, listed net huts and medieval Old Town. The gallery has received a number of architectural awards including a RIBA National Award, Civic Trust Award, Sussex Heritage Trust Award and reached the mid list for the Stirling Prize.

It is Hastings Contemporary’s ambition is to become a cultural hub in Hastings through our work in schools and the wider community. We encourage learning, access and enthusiasm for the visual arts with people of all ages and backgrounds.
