Grace Pailthorpe @ De La Warr Pavilion

14 October 2018 - 20 January 2019

An exhibition of paintings, drawings and autobiographical ephemera paired with in-depth psychoanalytic interpretation, by Grace Pailthorpe (1883 – 1971) and Reuben Mednikoff ( 1906 – 1972). 
The work of Pailthorpe and Mednikoff is still relatively unknown, and A Tale of Mother’s Bones will be the most significant presentation of their work in almost 20 years. Drawing on original archival research, it tells the story of the couple’s lives through their works; showing how they excavated their earliest memories (including memories of birth) in order to understand their adult relationships, critical reception, political context, and spiritual beliefs. The exhibition will reinstate the couple within the artistic and intellectual histories they contributed to, and will reveal a new term developed by the pair: Psychorealism.
