AN open call EXHIBITION BY SEYMOUR BIRD AT 35 NORTH GALLERY, Brighton, June 2021.
COLLECTING STORIES OF NIGHTS OUT IN BRIGHTON
The idea for this show was born in a pre Covid-19 world and was on the cusp of being realised as we were instructed to stay at home to protect ourselves and others a year ago.
A year on from the beginning of the first lockdown, this topic has taken on new meanings. Many of us have been starved of social interactions and the giddy excitement of jostling in a crowded pub or local venue. The memories of those experiences probably have a stronger shade of rose tint to them now as we look to a horizon with new hope of finding each other on the dancefloors of Brighton again.
The heart of the project remains the same.
COLLECTING STORIES OF NIGHTS OUT IN BRIGHTON THAT HAVE IN SOME WAY SHAPED THE PEOPLE WHO LIVED THEM, DO YOU COME HERE OFTEN? EXPLORES THE RANGE OF EXPERIENCES THAT CAN BE HAD IN OUR CITY AFTER DARK.
YOU ARE INVITED TO SHARE THE TALES, FAILS, WISDOM FROM STRANGERS AND MESSAGES FROM THE HEART SCRAWLED ON THE BACK OF THE TOILET DOOR THAT HAVE STAYED WITH YOU. THIS IS OUR LOVE LETTER TO THE ENTERTAINMENT VENUES OF BRIGHTON.
