Threshold is a pop up architecture and built environment centre demonstrating how architects and associated creative professionals can adapt, reuse, transform and re-invent the spaces around us, presenting an exhibition and programme of public events on the theme of inhabiting un[der]-used space(s).
It will be curated to include work and activity inspired by the theme from the architectural and creative communities of Brighton and Hove and Sussex and will be open to the public daily within the Love Architecture festival. The programme will include site-specific installations, exhibitions, workshops, film, talks and events.
Threshold will be based in the car park of myhotel, Brighton, and is led by RIBA Sussex Branch with a:b:i:r architects Chalk Architecture, architectural photographer Jim Stephenson and arts consultant and myself.
Threshold is seeking architects, artists, designers, heritage and creative professionals to contribute to the pop up installation and programme. All submissions to this open call should be inspired by the theme and aims of the pop up and use architecture and the built environment as its starting point.
We welcome submissions from any art form, including visual art, film/moving image/projection, spoken and written word, performance and dance, music, digital and virtual work. We of course consider architecture an art form and also welcome submissions from any architecture, built environment and heritage organisation or project.
Activity may include workshops, talks/lectures/debates, tours (using the building as its base), site specific installation, performance and live events and any other activity that could be reasonably facilitated within the building.
