Brighton Art Exhibitions – Our Top 5 For April 2015
Brighton is fit to burst with amazing art galleries and with so many exhibitions going on every month it can be hard to know which to visit. One of the City’s most eclectic galleries, Ink_d Gallery, gives us a monthly guide to their top 5 exhibitions to help you choose. Here are their top 5 Brighton art exhibitions for April 2015.
Dawn Chorus – Fabrica
Dawn Chorus by Marcus Coates uses unique digital methods to explore the relationship between birdsong and the human voice, drawing out similarities between the behaviour of birds and humans.
Loaned by the Arts Council Collection, this multi-screen film installation features 19 individual singers recreating birdsong. Together they form a chorus that accurately simulates the sounds and timings of a natural dawn chorus.
Date/Time: 3 April – 1 May | Weds – Sat, 12-5pm. Sundays, 2-5pm
Three Dimensions – Ink_d Gallery
The exhibition features work from both local and nationally renowned contemporary artist and consists solely of 3D pieces. Brand new Dan Baldwin bronzes, neon Andy Doig sculptural pieces, Gilles Buxton ‘sgraffito’ vase and Matt Smith ceramic assemblages will be on show. They will feature alongside pop culture pieces from sculptor Ryan Callanan (aka RYCA) – including the unmistakable Storm Trooper Buddhas, and totem poles consisting of casts of heads of 80s cartoon and film characters.
Date/Time: 13 March – 27 April | Mon-Sat 10am-6pm
Pills – Prescription Art
Dean ‘Zeus’ Colman’s highly anticipated exhibition ‘Pills’ will consist of a wall of oversized ecstasy tablets, each with their own distinctive – and authentic – branding. The exhibition consists of over 40 oversized hand-made ecstasy pills, each hand sculpted, then cast in plaster and painted. Each pill is available in an edition of 10.
Date/Time: 13 March – 12 April | Tues-Sat 11am-7pm
The Girlie Show – Brush Brighton

Neate Photos – The Old Market
When not at work as a psychiatrist, Greg Neate has been taking photographs of live music since 1989. In this exhibition, he brings two photography collections.

The second exhibition ‘Neate at ATP’ is a collection of Greg’s best photographs from over 10 years at All Tomorrow’s Parties, the curator-led holiday camp festival that began at Camber Sands.
