Event Description


For some years, Professor Val Williams has been working with the objects and collections assembled in Robert's Rummage in Hastings Old Town. Her first series, Pictures from Robert's,was exhibited in Finds 1 at the Well Gallery, London College of Communication, and published in  the Journal of Photography&Culture. This second project in the series -Postcards from  Robert's – is showing in the new PARcSPACE  at LCC as part of PARC’S  archive-mania season. It is a partner project with Photo Hastings, which opens in October 2014 and is the UK’s newest photography festival.  For this series, Val Williams selected 400 postcards the entire stock  of several thousand, collating them into sections such as People on their Own in the Landscape ,The  Main Street of the Village , Couples in Picturesque  Places and Bays .

Robert's Rummage is an institution in Hastings Old Town. It has provided a generation of men, women and children, residents and tourists, with items from the very useful to the highly decorative, and with everything in between.

Robin Christian has made a short film about Robert Mucci and his remarkable shop, which will be shown during the exhibition in London, and in Hastings during Photo Hastings 2014.
