Brixton East is a former furniture warehouse in Brixton. It was my favourite venue for art exhibitions. Sadly it is closed now but I’ve got some lovely photographs from previous exhibitions.
Brixton East was a beautifully designed multi use space. The owner had a flat cleverly located to the rear at first floor level.
It was a very trendy place , used for weddings, photoshoots and product launches, after parties for musicians playing at the nearby Brixton Academy.
It was a great location and venue, I loved it for the textures of the building.
In part the beauty of the building brought people in to exhibitions. Stewarding at this venue was always stimulating , the most intriguing people popped in to see the art and have a natter.
While fact checking for this blog I’ve discovered that it has reopened under a new name.
