Morag Myerscough’s Belonging Bandstand


  • Newhaven Fort Fort Road Newhaven, BN9 9DS United Kingdom (map)

Venue 87

Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft and Brighton Festival present Belonging, a co-commissioned touring installation created by contemporary artist Morag Myerscough stopping at Newhaven Fort during Artwave. The Belonging Bandstand project is born out of the kinship Myerscough feels with the work of 1960s Los Angelino artist Corita Kent, and accompanies Ditchling museum’s exhibition, Corita Kent: Get With The Action.

The bandstand will be resident at Newhaven Fort from 23 August (admission applies), when you can watch it being set up on Thursday and Friday. Newhaven Fort will then be open for free on Bank Holiday Monday 27 August to host the Festival of Belonging - the community’s own organised event (www.festivalofbelonging.co.uk). You will see placards created and painted by local Newhaven residents, inspired by a workshop with Morag on the theme of ‘belonging’, fixed on the crown of the bandstand.

This section of the Belonging project is sponsored by Artwave and Newhaven Fort.
