With the next Art Noise not taking place until April 5th (write it in your diary now people) we thought we would have a look at what events are taking place this month and throughout Spring.
1. it’s a phase (Thursday 22nd March, 8pm, The Quadrant, Brighton)
This is a brand new event showcasing video art work, with a very similar premise to our Art Noise Events. Instead of a focus on static art and photography there is much more of a focus on creative film and moving image.
The website states: “It’s a phase is a new video art night in Brighton, which aims to showcase all kinds of work in an informal and sociable environment i.e. the pub! The aim is to create a night that gives video art a home, as it doesn’t sit comfortably in the cinema or looped in a gallery. Everyone is welcome from someone who has never even heard of video art to a seasoned veteran.”
2. Invisible Flock – Sea of Voices (Spring 2012, Fabrica, Brighton)
This may not strictly be something up and running in March, but it’s too exciting to miss out on. The website of Brighton art gallery Fabrica states:
“Rising stars of the interactive digital art world, Invisible Flock will also be creating a new piece in Brighton this Spring. An outdoor interactive work that will lead the audience on a path from Fabrica via the seafront to Brighton Marina and examine our fascination with the stories and histories of the sea. The work is being developed through a residency at Blast Theory.
Both of these new works are being brought to Brighton through a partnership between Brighton’s leading visual arts organisations: Fabrica, Lighthouse, Blast Theory, Photoworks, Brighton Festival and University of Brighton, Faculty of Arts. Together they are the selected works that came from the Voices of the Sea commissions created in response toThe Boat Project. The works are part of RELAY, contemporary art in the south east of England commissioned in response to London 2012.
Check back for more details of these fantastic new works and the programme that will accompany them. We’ll also be posting information and details of the development of the works on Twitter and Facebook.”
3. The Correspondents Live (Thursday May 24th, Concorde 2, Brighton)
