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 - peck o' trouble
by artist Suzanne O'Haire

Friday 2nd - Sunday 25th November
Mon - Tues: by appointment only
Wed - Fri: 11:00am - 6:00pm
Sat - Sun: 12noon - 4:00pm

Free admission

For this exhibition, Suzanne O'Haire will present a series of 34 domestic-scale sculptural assemblages, titled beyond belief, made predominately out of discarded objects, castings from disposed packaging and elements of neon lighting. Permanent structures will emerge from impermanent matter, where arrangements of acrobatically stacked, bundled or tentatively balanced forms will perform as supposed magical sigils or spells.

O'Haire wants this work to encourage conversation regarding a presumed connection between the making of art and notions of magic. She has invited Sally O'Reilly (writer), Simon Costin (Director of the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic) and David Bramwell (writer/broadcaster) as guest speakers. All three have revealed a distinctive slant towards the occult within their own work and will give talks within the duration of the show.

Guest speaker events will be available to book through Eventbrite at a later date.
Sat. 10th Nov. - Sally O'Reilly
Sat .17th Nov. - Simon Costin
Sat. 24th Nov. - David Bramwell

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".
