We always thought Brighton Greenway was a fantastic space for art performance and exhibition. Last year, Natasha from Bird Studios composed and performed a dance along the twisting path. This year, we’re hosting an outdoor exhibition during October for Brighton Photo Fringe.
Work by seven photographers is going to be reproduced on photoboards and mounted in the arches at the north end of Brighton Greenway, just down from the New England Road iron bridge (with the locomotive sculpture). The exhibition is called The 7 Wonders of Film: “designed to promote and celebrate the beauty of the medium that is film photography”.
We’ve just been preparing the site, clearing overhanging shrubs and tomorrow, it’s painting. We look forward to lots of visitors to Brighton Greenway. It’s an edgy site, an intriguing combination of wildlife corridor (hence the messy wildflowers, some of which may be more recognisable as ‘weeds’ but full details on our Wildlife page), vestiges of Victorian railway architecture and a very 21st century urban walkway.
