Main gallery

Our Main Gallery offers a large exhibition space in the centre of Brighton and is used regularly for a host of exhibitions.

EXHIBITIONS​

The Main Gallery exhibition programme is developed in partnership with curators and partner organisations within our network.

We are open to hearing about ideas for exhibitions in this space. Our exhibition programme does not receive regular funding, so all activities in this space need to have the necessary funds in place.

For hire fees and to discuss your exhibition please contact Exec Director Lucy Day at lucyday@phoenixartspace.org

Café

Our licensed café is a great space for intimate events, acoustic sets, spoken word events or creative meet-ups.

This space is managed by our partners at Canvas Coffee Company.
