Due to unforeseen circumstances with the venue, this event can no longer take place this festival. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope to find a rescheduled date in future.

Susannah Hewlett serves up a platter of her finest work from the last two decades, including the return of her alter-ego – perennial idiot Chris Titmas.

Fixated on popular culture, Hewlett’s work charms and disarms audiences, mixing live comedic performance, subtle interventions, sound and video. She is an associate artist of legendary queer performance collective Duckie. In her work humour often gives way to discomfort, revealing the darker aspects of human behaviour and our symbiosis with consumerism.

Come and get comfy in Alan and Lorraine Surefoot’s front room to watch their big TV! Catch one of the live performances that will be happening at The Spire during Brighton Festival including Dinner for Two and The Great British Cack Off! The exhibition finale will take place on Fri 10 may with queer performance club night HARD LEISURE.

Co-presented by The Spire and Brighton Festival. Supported by Marlborough Productions and Look Again, Gray’s School of Art, RGU, Aberdeen
