Commissioning opportunity for South East based artists: HOUSE 2014

Brighton and Hove’s annual visual arts event HOUSE 2014 are inviting applications for this year’s artist commissions. Hurry though there is one week left to apply, the deadline is Friday 17 January 2014.

HOUSE 2014 have launched a commissioning opportunity in partnership with Lighthouse, Brighton Festival, Photoworks, The Regency Town House and University of Brighton.

HOUSE is Brighton & Hove’s annual visual arts event concerned with the commissioning of new work in partnership with Brighton Festival. HOUSE utilises domestic and unusual spaces to situate work throughout the city.

HOUSE 2014 invites outline proposals from artists based in the South East region, including London, for a series of commissions to be realised in May 2014.

For HOUSE 2014 artists are being asked to explore ideas around immigration but also wider considerations around notions of territory and place, cultural identity, displacement, refuge and seeking refuge and how this is understood and perceived in contemporary society: in the media, culturally and throughout history.

Responses are invited in a range of media.
