The exhibition features significant works by key photographers to examine the phenomenon of new photographic practices in Northern Ireland.
Since the 1980s Northern Ireland has produced a distinct body of photographic work by photographers from Northern Ireland and beyond. Many of the photographers included in this exhibition are internationally-recognised, but this is the first time they have been showcased together as part of the celebration of 30 years of Belfast Exposed.
Photographers include Craig Ames, Sylvia Grace Borda, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, Ursula Burke, John Byrne, Victoria J. Dean, Willie Doherty, John Duncan, David Farrell, Malcolm Craig Gilbert, Paul Graham, Philip Jones Griffiths, Anthony Haughey, Kai Olaf-Hesse, Sean Hillen, Claudio Hils, Daniel Jewesbury, Peter Marlow, Gareth McConnell, Patrick McCoy, Moira McIver, Mary McIntyre, Sean McKernan, Eoghan McTigue, Jonathan Olley, Mark Power, Paul Quinn, Paul Seawright, Victor Sloan, Mervyn Smyth, Hannah Starkey and Donovan Wylie.
The exhibition is accompanied by a substantial publication written by Colin Graham. The exhibition is guest curated by Karen Downey, Senior Curator at Belfast Exposed, in partnership with the MAC.
This exhibition takes place across both venues – the MAC’s 3 galleries, along with the downstairs gallery at Belfast Exposed (see our handy map in the photo gallery below to find out how to get between the two venues). All galleries are open from 10am – 7pm, seven days a week.
