Seafaring will bring together more than fifty works from 1820 to
the present day, exploring the drama, beauty and strangeness of life at sea.

At the heart of the exhibition is Lost at Sea, a show-within-a-show
featuring three oil paintings by eminent contemporary artist Cecily Brown
(b.1969) as well as lithographs by Martin Kippenberger (1953-1997) from his
suite Raft of the Medusa (1996), alongside a rare 19th
century mezzotint based on the famous Géricault painting.

Also included are works by Eric Ravilious (1903-1942), Elisabeth Frink
(1930-1993), James Tissot (1836-1902), Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898) Richard
Eurich (1903-1992), Alfred Wallis (1855-1942), Edward Wadsworth (1889-1949),
Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956) and Maggi Hambling (b.1945) – to name but a few.

Guest curator James Russell, who curated last year’s exhibition Seaside
Modern, says: “From trawlermen to submariners, migrants to merchant
seamen, people throughout the ages have shared the experience of being at sea.
Seafaring explores the perils and pleasures of life at sea, while at the same
time taking visitors on an art historical voyage from the Romantic age to the
present.”

Gallery Director Liz Gilmore says, “From JMW Turner to Cecily Brown,
Seafaring brings together beautiful, powerful works by a stellar group of
artists. Ten years ago our building opened on the Stade and Seafaring
is the perfect exhibition for our anniversary year.”
