Brighton’s ‘Room for Love’ exhibition continues to thrive
Room For Love is the exhibition that has kept everyone talking, comprising of Pride themed posters from artists and illustrators who are part of the They Made This collective to raise much needed funds for the Albert Kennedy Trust.
In response to the bustling atmosphere of the popup unit on Brighton’s Dukes Lane, this not-to-be-missed exhibition of exclusive one-off artworks has extended its occupancy until January 2020.
Additionally, all artwork can now also be viewed and purchased online, enabling each and every person with access to the internet to feast their eyes on the stand-out artwork that together, has formed the unforgettable ‘Room For Love’.
The exhibition features 20 Pride designs from 20 artists, with names such as Morag Myerscough, Camille Walala and Supermundane. Each design has been created specifically for this exhibition and is available to buy to raise money for the Albert Kennedy Trust (akt) – a national LGBTQ+ youth homelessness charity, providing safe homes and better futures for LGBTQ+ young people.
Creator of They Made This, Aine Donovan, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have spent the summer in such a fantastic city with wonderfully creative people, so much so that we have made the decision for our doors to remain open for another four months!
“It has been fantastic to be able to showcase our phenomenal artists’ talent, articulating the importance of Pride and raising money for an extremely worthy charity, akt.”
The They Made This store will be open until January 2020, but the artists have left their mark on Dukes Lane that will continue to make an impact long after the exhibition closes its doors, with a permanent colourful Pride mural emblazoning the phrase ‘We’re all Brighton lovers’ – designed and painted by artist couple, Rude.
