An exhibition featuring vibrant and visionary work by artists who work outside the arts mainstream. Phoenix Brighton is working in partnership with Outside In and HOUSE to host this special exhibition for the May festival in Brighton.
The exhibitors were selected from an open call to East Sussex artists affiliated with Outside In, proposing work relating to the HOUSE 2015 theme of Edge and Shift.
Founded by Pallant House Gallery in 2006, Outside In provides a platform for artists who have a desire to create, and who see themselves as facing barriers to the art world due to health, disability, social circumstance or isolation. The goal of the project is to create a fairer art world and to challenge conventional assumptions about whose work can and should be seen. The work in this exhibition stands on its own merit and demonstrates the power and breadth of the art being created outside of the mainstream art world.
Five Brighton-based selectors chose the final works to be included in the exhibition: Judy Stevens, the co-Director of HOUSE Festival; David Jones, a Brighton-based Outside In Award Winning artist; Simon Powell, Co-Founder of Creative Future, a Brighton-based organisation nurturing marginalised artists and writers in their creative development; Karin Mori, Artistic Programme Manager at Phoenix Brighton; and Jim Sanders, a Brighton-based contemporary artist.
