Artists on Show in Brighton

Galleries / Art Spaces / Organisations

Brighton Museum and Art Gallery

Recently transformed by a £10 million redevelopment, Brighton's Museum and Art Gallery displays a fascinating variety of both historical and contemporary cultural artefacts. From October 2006 to January 2007, Brighton Museum and the sites listed below all play host to Brighton's second Photography Biennial.


Contemporary visual art and craft gallery Fabrica opened a decade ago. Based in Brighton's disused Holy Trinity Church, Fabrica's exhibitions are complemented by education and publication programmes and professional development resources for artists.

University of Brighton Gallery

Gardner Arts Centre

Permanent's mission statement emphasises its provision of support for new ideas, new ways of artworking, and the establishment of dialogues between gallery artists and audiences. On site alongside the gallery is a specialist arts bookshop.

Phoenix Gallery

The gallery is just one face of the Phoenix Arts Association, billed as the largest artist-led arts organisation in the South of England. Phoenix Arts combines artists' studios and hirable project spaces with residencies, events and the provision of professional support for artists.
