The Streets Where Foxes Hide
26 October – 6 November
Brighton CCA: Dorset Place
6 Dorset Pl, Kemptown, Brighton BN2 1ST, UK

Niagara Falls Projects is pleased to present The Streets Where Foxes Hide, an exhibition of new mixed media works by Reinis Lismanis, guest curated by Tom Laver. Lismanis’ work emphasises the concrete, material conditions helping regulate the performance of everyday activities, including his own as an artist. Amongst his sources are the things encountered in and around his studio which he both depicts and employs directly as media. In presenting his process, Lismanis invites us to consider art’s contested relationship with labour and the significance of finished products.

Niagara Falls Projects is an artist-led Brighton-based project space founded in 2017 by James William Murray and Martin Seeds.

Tom Laver (1988) is Assistant Curator at Southampton City Art Gallery.
