Exhibition - Biog
by artist Veronica Slater

Monday 9th - Sunday 15th July 2018
11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Free admission

Abstract paining in blue by Veronica Slater

Biog is an installation of artwork and objects that narrate sixty years of a life. It seeks to connect an art practice with the personal stuff of living and the wider events that have taken place. 

We are all shaped by the context within which we live. In mapping an artist’s career, we can explore the different stages of how the work expresses our internal response to this context.

Biog is a fluid piece that will materialise throughout a week in the upstairs room of The Regency Town House, culminating in an ‘opening’ that will celebrate it's finished state at that point in time.

Renowned for promoting outstanding new talent, BPF connects this nascent talent to new audiences, working with artist-led initiatives and festivals around the country.

As a part of Brighton Photo Fringe, Miniclick and Gordon MaDonald return to the Regency Town House for Brighton Photo Fringe with a photographic exhibition exploring UFOs, truth and conspiracy.

Using a mixture of archive footage and photos, newly commissioned work, audio pieces, group workshops and performances, ‘For Everything, There’s a Purpose’ hopes to prompt the visitor to question whether we are visited, on a regular basis, by alien beings traveling in strange interstellar craft, or have vast numbers of people decided to make complex and life-altering fictions supporting the existence of such beings and technology.

Exhibition - Beyond Belief
by artist Suzanne O'Haire

Friday 2nd - Sunday 25th November
Opening times TBA
Free admission

Suzanne O'Haire creates domestic-scale assemblages out of everyday discarded junk and castings from disposed packaging. Arrangements of acrobatically stacked, bundled or tentatively balanced forms emerge from impermanent matter, becoming almost magical in their elements.

Three small sculptures made out of found materials.

As Suzanne explains, "No conscious value system breaks down why I chose what I do - I'd prefer to believe that what I find, or what finds me, plays with notions of luck and chance".
