The Place of Art

7 September 201710 September 2017

Studio 14

The Place of Art…today, in Brighton – ways of thinking about architecture, art and the nature of things (pt 1).

An exhibition of architectural project work produced by Studio 14.

“As a design Studio we set out to investigate the ‘place of art’ – asking in what form of place and space should, or could, art be held, staged or created, today, and specifically in Brighton? The project arises from observation that the City of Brighton is without a major venue for contemporary art. For a city that has a vibrant art based culture this is surprising. Our work responds to this situation in exploring different, diverse ways through which places of art might be evolved and established. The exhibition is the culmination of work that began last October, in collaboration with ONCA.”

For ONCA this is part of initiating a larger, more inclusive, on-going public conversation with Brighton, about the place and purpose of art. This exhibition is a celebration and show case of the project outcomes to date, and marks part 1 in a continuing series of collaborations with Studio 14.

Studio 14 is comprised of students Petros Christou // Sachini Jayasena // Christopher Long // Elena Mourantidi // Kamila Oszywa // Eugenia Papaiakovou // Linda Sze-To // Sing Yeung // Paulina Zavacka. Led by Jack Wates and Stephen Ryan; from the BA (Hons) Architecture course at the University of Brighton.

Launch Event // Thursday 7 September, 6 – 8pm

Opening hours // Friday & Saturday, 12 – 6pm & Sunday 12 – 4pm
