Crane Kalman Brighton is very pleased to announce the launch on a new gallery project being run in conjunction with Motel Studios in Hoxton. Launching as part of the First Thursday gallery night openings, the first exhibition will open on Thursday 5th March from 6-9pm.

Entitled Eclectica, the exhibition will feature a diverse selection of works by some of the gallery roster of artists to demonstrate the range and breadth of contemporary photographic practice. Artists featured in the exhibition will include British landscape photographer Ellie Davies, South Korean master Young Jin-Choi, Spanish conceptual photographic artist Rosa Basurto, New York illustrator/collagist Johanna Goodman, contemporary British photographers Samuel Hicks and Morgan Silk and French colourist Karine Laval.

The exhibition will be held in an entirely new gallery space, formerly part of the Motel photographic studio, a beautiful post-industrial Victorian brick arch underneath the East London railway line leading to Hoxton Station.

The new gallery will be the first fully-focused space dedicated to exhibiting the best in contemporary and modern photography. Alongside the exhibition programme, the gallery will host events, talks, seminars, book launches and photography workshops.

The gallery will be open on weekends, First Thursday evening events and by appointment.
