My name is Ella, I am an art curator with 10 years experience. I decided to start my own gallery because I believe in the power of art for social change. Women, minorities and communities are too often underrepresented in the art world and as a professional of the field it is my duty to fill this gap.
There are many galleries in Brighton but none is quite like the one I have in mind. Alongside a curated exhibitions program, Metropolis is going to host talks, book presentations, screenings, workshops, gigs, and so forth. International artists will be invited in residence to work with Brighton communities to create unique, site-specific artworks promoting social engagement through art.
Affordability and sustainability are Metropolis keywords. We want to promote an inclusive environment for everyone to relate with art in their personal way and we want to enforce sustainable way of living and doing business.
In this moment of crisis and uncertainty we think our mission gets even another purpose which is to find new way of being together sharing ideas and promoting a dialogue between different cultures.
As an independent business Metropolis needs your help to get up and running.
