SEAS invites artists working in drawing, painting, digital arts, printing, sculpture, photography and installation to submit work for the SEAS 3rd exhibition – The Other House. The group exhibition is organised in collaboration with the Black and Minority Ethnic Community Partnership (BMECP) Centre in Brighton and Counterpoints Arts, the national charity supporting work on migration, based in London. The Other House will run from 4th to 27th May, at BMECP. The Other House theme is open to artists’ interpretation but the priority will be given to socially and politically engaged work which support SEAS principles of collaboration, engagement with communities, diversity, the notion of art as a practice of transgression or dissensus, radical hospitality and sustainability.

Films will be screened on rotation on 40’ TV screen.
