APEC will be opening our studio doors to the public for the Brighton Digital Festival.
Do come along to the private view or join us on the weekend to view the studios, meet the artists and see our work.
When the Romanian-born sculptor Brancusi died in 1957 he bequeathed his art to France, where he had spent his working life, on condition it be shown only within the context of his studio. Taking the studio as a starting point, APEC artists offer some points for reflection upon the studio itself. An imaginative site, hotly contested, it is so much more than just a place to make work, offering an economy of exchange different from the prevailing system’s.
Days open: 18th,19th May 2013
Opening hours: 12.00 – 17.00
Additional days: Private View 18:00-20:00 on Friday 17 May 2013

Can you describe a photograph that doesn’t exist but is imprinted in your mind?
Is there a photograph you wish you had taken or one that got lost or destroyed before it was developed or printed?
As part of the Photo Fringe event at the Studios 19 – 21 October 2012 Lindsey Smith will be collecting descriptions of remembered photographs that don’t exist.

Photograph simply means drawing with light yet our associations with the medium extend far beyond this definition. In this exhibition the artists at APEC Studios investigate the photographic and its relationship to the real.

APEC is a not for profit, artist-run studio complex on Conway Street in Hove.
In its 10-year history APEC has been home to over 50 artists, gallerists, curators and educators. APEC members are committed to the arts, contributing to culture locally, nationally and internationally through working with schools, communities, museums and galleries across the South East and beyond. APEC provides affordable studio workspace for arts-professionals whose experimental practices make them more financially vulnerable. It offers a secure environment for a wide spectrum of artists from recent graduates to the more established and has been a sustainable and thriving creative community in Hove since 2003.
The Last Chance Salon will be an exhibition of current members’ work celebrating the diversity of practices that the studios has given home to.
