Reframing the Border @ Gallery of Photography


Reframing the Border
Saturday 14 July – Sunday 9 September 2018

Opening 6pm on Friday 13th July

“Reframing the Border is a group exhibition exploring the diverse physical, social, psychological and imagined spaces of the borderlands in Ireland. The exhibition presents work by fourteen leading Irish based photographers and includes seminal bodies of work by established artists together with new works by emerging talents.

The border in Ireland is one of the most important issues affecting the island of Ireland. As we approach an uncertain Brexit and the centenary of partition, the prospect of moving from a diffused border to a hard border prompts intense and critical reflection. The prospect of reinstating physical barriers only recently viewed as ‘gone forever’ raises concerns about the impact of the border on local communities, the people of this island and its wider impact in the EU. ”
