Art and Design at Brighton 1859-2009: from Arts and Manufactures to the Creative and Cultural Industries.
The anniversary book examines the role that the School of Art, now the Faculty of Arts & Architecture, has played since it was first established in rooms within the Brighton Royal Pavilion in 1859. It maps the development of the School against a variety of significant regional, national and international contexts, including interactions with local educational authorities, changes in art and design education and the symbiotic relationship between design and industry.
Features on a selection of staff and alumni of the School are a major part of the book, as is an account of the School’s dynamic and integral role in the social and cultural life of Brighton and the South East over the last 150 years: from the art students’ seaside pageants in the 1920s to alternative performance at the Zap Club.
