We are delighted to welcome Joseph Constable,  curator, writer and producer to the De La Warr Pavilion as our new Acting Head of Exhibitions.

Joseph joins us from the Serpentine Galleries, where most recently he co-curated major solo exhibitions of Hervé Télémaque (October 2021), Cao Fei (March 2020), and an online exhibition of artist moving image from East Asia in collaboration with NOWNESS and K11 Art Foundation (April 2020). He is also the co-curator of Park Nights 2021, Serpentine’s interdisciplinary live programme. Previous exhibitions include Albert Oehlen, Luchita Hurtado, Grace Wales Bonner, Atelier E.B, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Ian Cheng, Torbjørn Rødland, Arthur Jafa, John Latham, and Lucy Raven, as well as three Serpentine Pavilion commissions.

Joseph also works as a producer and curator of artist moving image and has organised film screenings at Hackney Picturehouse, Peckhamplex Cinema, Mindscape Universe, Berlin, and Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, Swansea. His writing has been published in Art Monthly, ESP Magazine, this is tomorrow, and as part of several exhibition catalogues. In 2019, he was Writer in Residence at Jerwood Arts. In 2015, he was the winner of the NEON Curatorial Award, in collaboration with The Whitechapel Gallery, London.

Joseph knows the Pavilion very well, as he grew up just outside Bexhill, attending Bexhill College before leaving to study in Edinburgh and London.  He says:

“Having grown up on the south east coast, I have long admired the De La Warr Pavilion for its multi-disciplinary programming and unique architecture. I am thrilled to collaborate with the team during this exciting period for the Pavilion and to foster new connections between artists and audiences. ”

Stewart Drew, DLWP Director & CEO says :

“The Acting Head of Exhibitions role is key to the planning and development of the future of the organisation.  We are excited to welcome Joseph to Bexhill and to work with him in the coming months  as we go through an exciting period of change”
