PUBLIC EXHIBITION SPACE
Phoenix Brighton runs a year round programme of public exhibitions, events and other activities in the gallery. This includes both curated exhibitions that are conceived and commissioned by Phoenix, and a range of exhibitions initiated via the application process described here. We provide a centrally located, well-known, friendly, accessible and professionally managed space in which to present your exhibition.
Artists, curators and exhibition organisers can apply for an exhibition space provided they have in place or are likely to raise funds to cover the venue costs (figures below).
The galleries at Phoenix Brighton are located on the ground floor of the building, which is based in central Brighton. The North (large) gallery is comprised of a large space approximately 11 x 14 metres, and a smaller adjacent space (see floor plan below). One side of the gallery has windows facing the street. The walls are painted white, the floor is plywood painted dark grey, and the ceiling is 2.9 meters high, with LED track lighting.
If you wish to hire the gallery for an event or private activity, please go to this page.
