An extraordinary exhibition of multidisciplinary arts in one of the UK’s most vibrant destinations; HOUSE 2012 in Phoenix Brighton.
Bathe in the light of David Batchelor’s luminous artwork or lose yourself in an absorbing Patrick Hamilton 3-d adaptation or be humbled by Helene Kazan’s heartfelt film of a domestic struggle set in the politically volatile Lebanon.
Uniting fine art from international David Batchelor (who will be showcasing the largest survey yet of his brilliant work in the elegant Regency House) to the unusual wallpaper-inspired outdoor designs running through the streets by emerging artist Deb Bowness, to an immersive literary installation of the darkly humorous novel, Hangover Square by the artist and Cine City directors Tim Brown & Anna Deamer, HOUSE 2012 is a visual arts festival not to be missed.
David Batchelor, as lead artist, influences the selection and development of 5 smaller satellite commissions that make up HOUSE Festival 2012. Where HOUSE 2011 attracted over 11,000 visitors in 8 days, HOUSE 2012 is set to be the biggest curated visual arts festival in Brighton yet.
Sally Abbott, Regional Director, Arts Council England, South East, which is supporting HOUSE 2012 with more than £90,000 in funding, said: ‘We are very proud and excited to be supporting HOUSE 2012. This year’s programme, with its association with renowned British artist David Batchelor, represents a significant leap for the organisation and for the visual arts in Brighton.”
