The fan, a fashion accessory often forgotten, is put in the spotlight in this exhibition. The museum has selected fans from its collection to explore the art, language and craftsmanship of the fan interposed with items from the collection that reflect the period in which each fan was used. “We will be exploring the imagery of the fans, how they mirrored fine art of the time as well as looking into the language of fans and how they were used as means of communicating between people, the political propaganda they represented and fans that were used for advertising, dating back to the early 1700s,” explains Gerry Connolly, the museum’s senior curator.

Gluck: Art & Identity

Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, 12A Pavilion Parade, Brighton

Until Sunday March 11

Usual admission charges apply
This major exhibition explores the life and work of the 20th century artist Gluck (1895-1978) who is now recognised as a trailblazer of gender fluidity. Born Hannah Gluckstein into a wealthy Jewish family, Gluck attended art school in London and ran away to Cornwall with fellow students during the First World War. The artist mixed with the Newlyn School of painters and adopted the name Gluck, creating a controversial masculine identity incorporating men’s tailoring, barber-cut short hair and a mannish demeanour. Gluck, who demanded ‘no prefix, suffix, or quotes’, became well known as a painter. Portraits, land and seascapes and floral paintings are all included in this show, along with
clothing, accessories, photographs, press cuttings and personal ephemera. The exhibition is part of Wear it Out, a partnership with The Centre for Fashion Curation at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts, London funded by Heritage Lottery Fund. Picture above: Gluck c 1932/Howard Coster Fine Arts Society. Picture below: Gluck, Lords and Ladies, detail, 1936.

Michael Morpurgo says, “After a few months’ rest, out at pasture, Joey the war horse and his great team from the National Theatre will be touring the UK again, in many places War Horse has not been seen before. I am so pleased this is happening… Steady boy, steady Joey. Trot on!” Picture: Brinkhoff&M+Âgenburg.

Inspired by the beautiful and sad Hans Christian Andersen tale The Little Matchgirl, and combining Andersen’s other tales The Princess and the Pea, The Emperor’s New Clothes and Thumbelina, The Little Matchgirl and Other Happier Tales reveals a spellbinding world of magic and mystery. As the destitute heroine struggles to survive, she strikes her matches to keep warm. Each match will conjure a new story, a new vision, and the audience tumbles down the rabbit hole with her. Written by Joel Horwood and directed by Emma Rice, this production comes to Chichester following its critically acclaimed premiere at Shakespeare’s Globe. Expect music, puppetry, dark magic… and perhaps some modern truths we would rather remain hidden.
