This event is co-curated by De La Warr Pavilion and Project 78

At Project 78, the gallery will be divided in half , with some performances taking place in an open ‘white cube’ space and others within a specially constructed ‘black cube’. These small spaces will host live bands, a performance lecture on infinite economics, artist films, DJs and more. With space for only about ten  lucky audience members within each ‘cube’, a live internet video-stream will be sent to Kino Teatr’s cinema/gallery/bar which is situated just a few metres away on the same street. Screenings will also take place in New York and Paris venues, in similarly sized black cubes.  Alongside this the video stream will be viewable online at and the DFA record label site.

Dear Serge:
Over the last two years, with the generous support of the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, the De La Warr Pavilion has produced a groundbreaking programme of interdisciplinary one-day live arts events under the ‘Dear Serge’ moniker.

Named in tribute to the forward thinking architect Serge Chermayeff, the Dear Serge programme has stayed true to the spirit in which the iconic building of  the De La Warr pavilion was conceived. Presenting and promoting the very best in new, cross-disciplinary and experimental art from the UK and beyond, over 24 months we have commissioned and supported over 50 early career artists.

For this event we are taking Dear Serge out of the building and joining up with local organisations who share our enthusiasm for the very best in fresh, new art forms. We are honoured to be working with two organisations situated just along the coast in the culturally thriving town of St Leonards-on-Sea (Project 78 Gallery and Kino Teatr).
