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.
