Three Irish photographers are exhibiting at Circulations Festival in Paris this year.
The Festival will run till 26th June, 2016
Presented by this year’s guest gallery, The Library Project, Circulations Festival features two Irish artists, Shane Lynam and Aisling McCoy. Their great work will add to that of Mark Duffy, selected for the main programme of the festival. All in all, a great representation of contemporary photography in Ireland.
The Library Project is PhotoIreland’s volunteer led space holding a specialised Art bookshop, a gallery, and most importantly, the public resource library of photobooks that gives name to the space. PhotoIreland offers this growing resource of books as part of their emphasis on promoting a critical engagement with photography in Ireland.
Having enjoyed an effervescent program of exhibitions, book launches, and events since 2013, the gallery is now focusing on offering a growing selection of photographic artworks to local audiences. Amongst other artists, we exhibited works by Eamonn Doyle, Barry W Hughes, Sanne Thunnissen, Jim Ricks, and Katrin Korfmann, and hosted other collections like that of the traveling ‘Zines Of The Zone’, the Fotobook Kassel Dummy Award, and the Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Award.
CALL FOR NEW IRISH WORKS
PhotoIreland is calling all photographers and artists based in Ireland, or Irish developing their practice abroad to submit their recent and ongoing projects to be considered. The submissions will be reviewed by an international panel, and a list of 20 awarded projects will be announced on the 11th of April.
Every month from July 2016 to July 2017, a special presentation will be hosted at The Library Project for two selected artists at a time, launching a solo publication each and enjoying a display of their artworks on sale. There will be a total of 10 presentations with 20 projects and 20 publications for the 20 artists selected.
