Part of Artists Open House Festival “Somewhere, Over the Rainbow” is not just pictures hanging on a living room wall… Straight from the Tate Modern, SEAS will exhibit the provocative installation “The New Union Flag” by Gil Mualem Doron and a proposal for a flag for Brighton, which will be handed to mayor Pete West at the opening. Alongside, a spaceship will incorporate hundreds of works by pupils from St Luke’s, St Mary’s, St John, and Balfour Primary Schools in Brighton. The Migrant English Project’s members will exhibit a series of collages on ceramics telling their stories from far and near. The photographer, Russell Watkins will exhibit a photo journey he took during his work with DFID UK at refugee camps in the Middle East, and the photographer Alice Mutasa will exhibit portraits of Touareg refugees from Timbuktu. Outside the Box, recently exhibited at the Tate Modern, artist Laura Sorvala will exhibit a series of mesmerizing drawings of acts of solidarity and kindness that individuals have experienced in their everyday life. Louise Purbrick (University of Brighton) and Elaine Ortiz (Hummingbird Project) will display the project! Make it Happen!: Homes for Refugees. Works for sale, artists’ talks & workshops. The exhibition is supported by Sanctuary on Sea and Platforma – arts and refugee network.
