Although Ivan Chermayeff was born in London in 1932, we lost this artist to America at the start of World War Two, when his family emigrated. After a long time missing out Chermayeff's work has finally made it to Britain, in his first UK display at the De La Warr Pavilion. At the title suggests, Cut and Paste is a collage exhibition. Chermayeff has been interested in this medium since before the start of his artistic career, from when he was working for major corporations, such as Mobil and Chase Manhattan, where he would turn old scraps of paper at his desk into imaginary beings.
Ivan Chermayeff is not a solitary artist, often collaborating with people such as Robert Brownjohn and Tom Geismar. He has been involved in projects with museums, exhibitions, signage, and creating book jackets. Cut and Paste focusses on Chermayeff's collaborations with his family, which have worked in the arts for the last three generations. It is free to visit, and runs until the 14th September.
