Prescription Gallery - Church Road, Brighton

I really must get to Brighton much more often. Directly opposite the Corn Exchange a new gallery has opened up in the old music library building. It's a temporary gallery open until January when the building will be redeveloped into (yet another)

The gallery founded by James Wolley specialises in street art from around the world - exhibiting graffiti and street art from as far afield as Brazil and Australia as well as local Brighton artists.

The gallery reminded me of squat gallery/art centres in Prague or Dresden in the years following the fall of the Berlin wall before the likes of Beneton spruced the place up.

Some of this is due to the atmospheric use of an old building, but also the gallery is making full use of the space with large wooden constructions reaching through the space, graffiti installations as well as saleable paintings, small scale constructions and prints.

Worth a look if you are visiting baf this weekend
