On the occasion of Helen Cammock’s takeover of multiple billboards in Brighton from 3-6 August as part of All About Love, you are invited to join the artist in conversation with former director of Brighton Centre for Contemporary Art (Brighton CCA), Ben Roberts, as well as executive director of Phoenix Art Space Lucy Day, moderated by author and The Art Newspaper journalist Anny Shaw.

Originally planned to coincide with the opening of a major outdoor commission by Cammock for the recently closed Brighton CCA, the deepest crease in the folds of stone and the sweet taste of salt (2023) by Helen Cammock is a newly commissioned series of work that has morphed from an ode to Brighton and its many folds, into a plea and a challenge to its institutions to support and nurture the contemporary visual arts in a more structured, sustained and existential way.

This launch event is an opportunity to platform vital conversations about what it means to value art – as a practice and as a cultural context. Bringing together voices from Brighton’s arts scene, the event will explore the importance of preserving and nurturing arts education, looking at what changes are necessary to create a more hopeful future for artists and the wider art ecosystem in Brighton and beyond.

This event is part of ‘All About Love’ commissioned by BUILDHOLLYWOOD in five UK cities this year and is curated by Zarina Rossheart. Using cultural critic bell hooks’ seminal work of the same name as a starting point, this project was initiated with the hope to inspire audiences to create a better future together.

‘All About Love’ is commissioned as part of BUILDHOLLYWOOD’s Your Space Or Mine, an ongoing project that has provided artists and creatives a unique platform to bring their work to the streets of the UK for more than a decade.

This event is kindly hosted by Phoenix Art Space. Phoenix Art Space is a dynamic, inclusive arts organisation located in the centre of Brighton and established as a charity in 1995. Their mission is to support a diverse range of artists’ practice, providing affordable studio space, and to be a centre for artistic activity, bringing together professional artists and the public in a setting that encourages creativity, collaboration and exchange.
