A Public View
Panik came across A Public View through a friend who told us that they were doing accessible art. Public View is based on the simple idea of staging art exhibitions on the street and the 20th of March 2010 saw their first exhibition opening. The exhibition is taking place in Brighton and sees five photographs displayed in as many locations across the city. The images are of nearby windows that have been photographed, printed and pasted up near the original real window. Panik thinks it’s a really clever idea; a subtle intervention into daily life but one that allows the everyday world around us to be seen slightly differently.
We don’t know when the exhibition ends as the organisers don’t either – as long as the council allows them we guess. You can keep and eye on the progress of the work by checking out their website here, which has more information, mailing list, images of the work and a free guide to the exhibition. A Public View was also realised through the help of Second Draft, who are small design team specialising in website design and maintenance, with an interest in helping people in the creative arts.
