New Irish Works
PhotoIreland Festival 2013 will focus on the current state of photography in Ireland, with exhibitions and events launching in Limerick on 3 July, Dublin on 4 July and Cork on 5 July.
The currency and relevance of the medium of photography has generated a flourish of awards, residencies, educational programmes, publications and exhibitions in Ireland. Galleries as far away as Australia, Argentina, and China are increasingly displaying the work of Irish-based photographers. The festival’s programme of activities will reflect on the exciting process that photography is undergoing on the island.
New Irish Works brings together a selection of 25 Irish and Irish-based photographers, underlining the diversity of practices that constitute contemporary photography in Ireland. The exhibition states and celebrates the emergence of a new wave of artists, and will be accompanied by a dedicated publication. Planned as a multi-city experience, it will be hosted at various locations in Dublin, Limerick, and Cork, including the National Photographic Archive in Dublin and Ormston House in Limerick.
PhotoIreland Festival is grant-aided by The Arts Council of Ireland and Dublin City Council.
Admission is free and all are welcome.
