The MAC  has teamed up with Belfast Exposed Photography to launch a joint exhibition ‘Northern Ireland: 30 Years of Photography’.

The exhibition which will see some of Northern Ireland’s most iconic images sit alongside works by amateur photographers will be housed in four galleries across the two venues from 10 May to 7 July. The exhibition of almost 200 images is free to visit in both the MAC at Saint Anne’s Square and Belfast Exposed on Donegall Street with a short walk between the two venues.

Curated by Karen Downey, Senior Curator at Belfast Exposed, the exhibition takes a look at the photography styles that came out of Northern Ireland during the 1980s taking us up to the opportunities brought by the Peace Process. It also looks at a number of social themes through the years, right up to a series of contemporary works.

‘Northern Ireland: 30 Years of Photography’ opens to the public at both venues on Friday 9 May and is free to visit – galleries are open daily from 10am – 7pm.

As a general rule, popular art forms leave you cold. You'd rather explore neglected avenues. Making friends is easy, since you feel an instant connection with anyone who shares your obsession with the esoteric. Birds of unusual feathers often flock together.More
