HOUSE is a curated contemporary visual arts event, taking place biennially in October across Brighton & Hove. HOUSE produces a series of co-commissions, often with city visual arts partners, and invites an internationally respected artist both to produce a major new piece of work and to develop a curatorial theme. Other co-commissioning opportunities are offered to a range of emerging, mid career and artists otherwise marginalised from the art world mainstream, along with a wider community programme.
HOUSE was conceived in 2008 to provide a commissioning platform for contemporary visual artists and to promote a wider public engagement with contemporary visual arts in the city of Brighton & Hove.
Inclusivity and accessibility are inherent to HOUSE offering the potential to experience new ideas and different ways of thinking within the artistic process.
HOUSE is co-directed by Celia Davies and Judy Stevens.
