HASTINGS.- This comprehensive retrospective exhibition provides a rare glimpse into the early talent and wit of the Chapman brothers.

This exhibition, their first at Hastings Museum & Art Gallery will feature a complete portfolio of etchings from the 'Gigantic Fun' series, drawings and some early animal sculptures.

Jake and Dinos Chapman were brought up in Cheltenham and Hastings and both studied at the Royal College of Art before deciding to work together. Emerging under the label of Young British Artists in the 1990s, the Chapmans' art examines with searing wit and energy, contemporary politics, religion and morality.

Also on display in the Long Gallery, a chance to see a selection of Jake and Dinos portrait paintings titled ‘One Day you will no longer be loved’, where the Chapmans have doctored anonymous aristocratic portraits from the 18th and 19th centuries with grossly deformed and morbid features, essentially questioning the legacy and vanity of portraiture itself. These works are displayed within a larger portrait display from the museum’s permanent collection.
