Altered Exhibition By Artist Open Houses & Brighton Fringe
This June, Churchill Square is home to ALTERED, an exhibition which presents twelve local emerging artists, sharing ways in which they have experimented, modified or adapted their practices in light of recent restrictions. The exhibition showcases local talent in varied art forms and, as part of The Artist’s Open House Festival, will play an important part in the post-lockdown return of culture to our city.
Located on the East Mall in a former retail unit, each weekend from 5-27 June, shoppers and art lovers alike can explore the exhibition which showcases new or recent works by emerging local artists. The work reflects ways in which they have continued to create and push boundaries despite the challenges of living through lockdowns. With limited access to the studio, darkroom or workshop, artists have been navigating new approaches and discovering innovative ways of working.
Exhibiting artists include Joy Bews-Pick, Ainoa Burgos Gonzalez, Morag Caister, Jade Hylton, Caitlin Irving and Julia Jolliff. In recognition of the difficulties that the pandemic has brought to exhibition making, curator Claire Wearn, understands the importance of artists who are starting out in their careers being able to show work physically.
