5862500Brewers Towner Commission: Dance Diagonal
DateTuesday 23rd July 2019 to Sunday 31st May 2020
DescriptionGerman artist Lothar Gotz has transformed the exterior walls of Towner Eastbourne with his new large-scale, colourful geometric artwork, Dance Diagonal (2019). Gotz, who is based in the U.K., was chosen from 60 artists and designers in an open call for the Brewers Towner Commission to create an artwork to mark the tenth anniversary of the gallery's move from its original home in Eastbourne's Old Town. The Brewers Towner Commission is part of a year-long programme celebrating ten years in the Towner building, which opened in 2009 after the gallery moved from its original home in Eastbourne's Old Town. The Brewers Towner Commission is a painted commission that encompasses all rendered facades of the award-winning building, which was designed by Rick Mather Architects. This exciting public artwork has been made possible with the support of Brewers Decorator Centres, with the company aiming to spark conversation and support artistic practice in Eastbourne, where the company is based, and beyond. Drawing on its unique architecture, angles and exterior recesses and alcoves, Gotz's mural - his largest to date - envelops the length and width of three sides of the award-winning building. Gotz's work - typically large-scale paintings, drawings and installations that respond to existing architectural structures - has included commissions for South Bank Centre, London (2014) and Leeds Art Gallery (2017). Dance Diagonal is his first major commission on the south coast and the first time an artist has been commissioned to create an artwork for Towner's exterior.
