Exhibition Preview & Garden Party

‘Dreamy, haphazard, enchanting paintings of the American wilds…Brighton has a coup here’
– Laura Cumming, Observer 2022
Join us by the sea for fish & chips in the garden at Brighton CCA to celebrate the opening of The Exile of Dionysus, the first major exhibition of works in a UK institution by American artist Bill Lynch (1960–2013). The Exile of Dionysus is an exhibition tracing connections in Lynch’s work spanning ancient cultures, mythology, art history and the natural world. Largely overlooked in his lifetime, Bill Lynch was a painter of exceptional power and talent whose work, ranging across time and cultures, continues to speak to us about the power of the past in the present moment.
