Horsebridge Open 2018 (13th Jan - 28th Jan)

The Horsebridge Arts Centre in Whitstable has a new show: Art Is Something More Dangerous which runs from now until Sunday the 28th of January. The opening hours of the centre are as follows: Mondays to Saturdays - 9am to 6pm. Sundays: 10am to 5pm. Address: 11 Horsebridge Road, Kent CT5 1AF For more info visit:
The Horsebridge Centre is located in the heart of Whitstable on a site which has a long tradition of community and cultural activity. Since its launch in April 2004, the Horsebridge has established itself as a quality venue at the heart of arts, social, learning and leisure activities in Whitstable and the wider east Kent area. The Horsebridge Centre has a packed programme of events all year round that includes ground floor galleries, workshops, cafe with balcony and a large performance space for theatre, screenings, talks and live music. The exhibition title hails from the following quote from Simon O'Sullivan's 2001 essay on art and affect: 'But in fact, art is something much more dangerous: a portal, an access point to another world (our world experienced differently), a world of impermanence and interpenetration, a molecular world of becoming.' The exhibition's aim is to bring together artists of all levels who explore the role of art in contemporary society and work in engaging, playful, thought-provoking ways. The submitted works have been curated into a 'living room' space. And the works respond to themes of domesticity, interiors, lived-in spaces and objects, relationships and rituals that exist in these environments, notions of gender, class, dreams, desires, hopes, situations, sounds and atmospheres that artists associate with 'the living room'.
