About this event

Book a viewing appointment to see HOME with MOOP x MNEMOSCENE in the Main Gallery at Phoenix Art Space from 20 May - 6 June. Tickets also grant you entry to CARE in the Window Gallery from 20 - 30 May.

MAIN GALLERY (20 MAY - 6 JUNE)

A row of terraced houses used to stand where Phoenix Art Space is now. In the sixties, they were bought and demolished to make way for office space. Apart from one. Harriet Sylvester – who lived in the middle – refused to move out of her home.

An immersive exhibition created around the exact space where her house once stood, HOME presents fascinating, heart-breaking and uplifting stories of ordinary people. MOOP and Mnemoscene have collaborated with members of the public to explore how their collections of everyday objects, photos and documents can be curated to represent our emotional connection with the home and showcase untold narratives that chronicle real people’s lives.In partnership with Brighton Festival 2021.

This exhibition will be online from 1 May, visit harriets.house and experience the exhibition virtually. From 20 May – 6 June, this exhibition will be open to the public Thursday – Sunday, 13.00 – 17.00. Visitors must pre-book a free, timed slot in advance of their visit as the number of people in the galleries must be restricted. We are allowing a small number of walk-ins each day but pre-booking is encouraged.

- If you are able to, please bring a pen and a pair of headphones.

WINDOW GALLERY (20 - 30 MAY)

Studio artists at Phoenix Art Space have been invited to consider the theme of care for a group exhibition in the Window Gallery. What does care mean within the context of a global pandemic? How do we care for ourselves, our communities and our environment at a time of adversity and rising inequality? Featured artists are Denise Harrison, Veronica Slater, Denise Felkin, Jane Campling, Rachel Cohen, Kiki Stickl and Sophie Hulf. Artworks in this exhibition have been selected by Beth Burgess, Executive Producer of Brighton Festival.

From 20 - 30 May, this exhibition will be open to the public Thursday – Sunday, 13.00 – 17.00. Visitors must pre-book a free, timed slot in advance of their visit as the number of people in the galleries must be restricted.
