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 September 2015.


Brighton Art ExhibitionsThe Dark Knight Rises Batsuit on display at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery

To celebrate the inaugural Costume Games, Brighton Museum will host Christian Bale’s Batsuit from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.

This is a genuinely rare opportunity to get up close to one of the most iconic superhero costumes of our times. There is also the chance to meet the team behind the costume during one of the workshops at The Costume Games in Old Steine Gardens.

Date/Time: 18 August – 20 September | Tues-Sunday 10am-5pm
Admission: Free for Brighton and Hove residents


Edo City GirlBrighton Art Exhibitions at Ink_d Gallery

Lady Aiko is well known for her work with Banksy, Takashi Murakami and FAILE, but since becoming a solo artist in her own right Lady Aiko has developed a inimitable style. She cleverly combines American contemporary art movements such as Abstractionism, POP Art, Graffiti and Street Art with the Japanese traditional aesthetic in which she was originally trained.
For her ‘Edo City Girl’ show at Ink_d she will present fresh new work and will launch a new and exclusive limited edition print, which she will hand finish live at the private view.

Date/Time: 11-20 September| Mon-Sat 10am-6pm. Sundays 12-4pm
Admission: Free


Brighton Art ExhibitionsOcean Blues at Brighton Museum

The oceans are home to more than half of all life on earth, cover 70% of the earth’s surface and have supported life on our planet for millions of years, but the last century has seen the oceans devastated with the invention of plastics and industrialised methods of fishing.

This new display at Brighton Museum’s Spotlight Gallery looks at some of the threats to life in the oceans as well as initiatives designed to reduce or reverse the impact modern society has had on this precious environment.

Date/Time: 6-30 September | Tues-Sunday 10am-5pm
Admission: Free for Brighton and Hove residents

Japanese street artist Lady Aiko will open this year’s Japanese festival, renamed The Costume Games to tie in with the Rugby World Cup. An international celebration of Japanese theatre, performance, arts, films and culture, the festival is now in its sixth year.

Not only will Aiko be painting a wall in Gatwick Airport to welcome visitors to the Rudgy World Cup games, she’ll also be painting a legacy street mural in Brighton and will be creating art live from the festival, which coincides with Japan playing South Africa at the Amex Stadium.

Date/Time:  16th September | Wednesday 10am-6pm
Admission: Free
