The exhibition features significant works by key photographers and is the first 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.
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. The exhibition is curated by Karen Downey, Senior Curator at Belfast Exposed, in partnership with the MAC.
This exhibition will take place across both venues – the MAC’s 3 galleries, along with the galleries at Belfast Exposed based on Donegall Street. All galleries will be open from 10am – 7pm, seven days a week.
