HOUSE is a curated contemporary visual arts event, taking place biennially in October across Brighton and Hove. HOUSE produces a series of co-commissions, often with city visual arts partners, and invites an internationally respected artist both to produce a major new piece of work and to develop a curatorial thematic together with HOUSE Curator Celia Davies. Other co-commissioning opportunities are offered to a range of emerging, mid career and artists otherwise marginalised from the art world mainstream, along with a wider community programme.
HOUSE was conceived in 2008 to provide a commissioning platform for contemporary visual artists and to promote a wider public engagement with contemporary visual arts in the city of Brighton and Hove.
Inclusivity and accessibility are inherent to HOUSE offering the potential to experience new ideas and different ways of thinking within the artistic process.
HOUSE is devised and directed by Judy Stevens and Chris Lord.
