THE THIRD exhibition of Curfew, a contemporary art project based in an Edinburgh flat, will feature work by the artist Alex Hare.

The exhibition, intermittently held in a flat in Newhaven, runs from June 17 to 24.

The show takes its inspiration from Woody Allen's film Interiors.

Ms Hare is an artist based in Edinburgh.

She uses collage techniques such as cut up and digital/video mash ups, and makes works drawn from images found in books, magazines and film.

Performance, script writing and music also play a role throughout her work.

She collaborates with artist Francesca Nobilucci – working under the name Yokollection.

The artist has also founded a gallery space in her flat, and she was Co-director of Embassy Gallery 2010-12 and a member of the

experimental pop band PET (KutuFolk Records).
