You can help us make HOUSE 2013 the most engaging contemporary visual arts event in Brighton and Hove.
HOUSE 2013 opens to the public on Saturday 4 May 2013 amidst a grand cultural tradition of springtime festival fever across Brighton and the surrounding area. Our small hard working team really need your support and donations to make this year’s events programme the best ever.
At HOUSE 2013 we have co-commissioned a new immersive installation from internationally renowned Bristol based artist Mariele Neudecker, Heterotopias and other domestic landscapes which will be installed at grade I listed building The Regency Town House in Brunswick Square, Hove.
Through an open submission process we have commissioned 4 additional new works from South East based contemporary artists Andrew Kotting with Anonymous Bosch, David Wightman, Emma Critchley and Dylan Shipton & Ben Fitton.
This year HOUSE will be taking visitors on a journey to unknown landscapes at unexpected venues and spaces across Brighton & Hove.
From Neudecker’s images beamed in from the remotest parts of the planet and the deepest ocean beds to the rare chance of observing a grounded, collapsed airship from artist collaborators Shipton and Fitton.
Andrew Kötting with Anonymous Bosch, newly returned from their expedition to the French Pyrenees, transport us, via their pinhole image installation, to a remote cave deep within The Mountain of Fear. Emma Critchley’s work Aria invites us into a space altered by a sonic liquid landscape that will heighten the senses.
And a little closer to home, David Wightman’s large-scale wallpaper painting will seek to impart a sense of homely melancholy and failed beauty in an unknowable landscape.
HOUSE 2013 takes place from 4 to 26 May in various locations. Exhibitions open Thursdays to Sundays, 12 noon to 6pm.
Your donation will enable us to develop a new highly engaging and interactive programme of HOUSE 2013 activities, taking visitors deep inside the artist’s worlds.
This May HOUSE 2013 will be able to offer, with your support, around 30,000 visitors the chance to meet the artists, join in debate and talks, watch films and explore new contemporary art throughout the city.
