Focusing on our global connectivity, neXus presents a series of pop up exhibitions across Brighton alongside several virtual platforms which offer a unique transnational axis for artists to reflect on our humanity – our differences, our shared heritage and the many sensibilities we have in common. The wide range of themes explored include; the intersections of justice (social, economic, political, climate), culture, activism, colonialism, embodied trauma, transitions, displacement, identity, heritage, gender, migration, mental health, racism, violence, conflict, emotions, wellbeing, spiritualism, allyship and FUN!

Due to the current covid restrictions, unfortunately most of the pop up exhibition sites have strictly limited indoor access by appointment only, so the exhibitions can be viewed from the external windows of each location apart from Brighton Dome which allows public access subject to visitors complying to the track and trace measures in place
