HOUSE festival, which is now in its 4th year, opened in Brighton on 5th May and brings a series of new contemporary visual art commissions to the streets and public spaces of the city until Sunday 27th May.

HOUSE is the curated visual art arm of Brighton and Hove's Artists Open Houses which originally began in 1982 when it was set up by Fiveways artist Ned Hoskin. It is now a Brighton institution whereby people can see and buy work directly from artists in their homes. Artists Open Houses (AOH) was formally set up in 2004 by a group of Open House artists, with the aim of producing a brochure uniting all the individual trails around Brighton. 

The HOUSE festival is this year led by renowned British artist David Batchelor who has created two new commissions for Brighton. These include Skip and the Brighton Festival co-commission, Brighton Palermo remix, which can be viewed Wed to Sun 12.00 - 18.00 at The Regency Town House, 13 Brunswick Square, Hove BN3 1EH. Skip is on display outside Moshi Moshi in Bartholomew Square, Brighton BN1 1JS. 

Artists who have completed satellite commissions for HOUSE include Robin Blackledge, Caroline le Breton, Deb Bowness, Helene Kazan and CINECITY with Anna Deamer.
