Greetings From Ireland at the Hamburg Triennial of Photography

By 29/05/2015News

The 40 selected images from Greetings From Ireland are travelling to the Hamburg Triennial of Photography, joining the busiest Photography hub this year, and ensuring a great representation of local artists at this key event in the Photography calendar. The exhibition will run from the 18th to the 28th of June in Hamburg at a specially built Container City. Meanwhile, in Dublin, we will celebrate the second phase of this project with Greetings From Ireland Worldwide, exhibited at the City Assembly House and The Library Project, where we will be displaying the results of the call for global participation.


Regarding the Triennial’s plans, “the focal point of the festival will be a container village on Deichtorplatz featuring exhibitions by ten European photo festivals and photo schools. As international partner, New York’s Photoville Brooklyn festival will present contemporary American photography. Inspired by Photoville, the leading US-american photo festival, a container city with exhibitions and night-time multimedia projections will be created for first time in Hamburg. Photoville forms a major part with six exhibitions within the container city. Here highly-respected contemporary American photographers will be presented, such as Nina Berman, Stanley Greene, Chris Bartlett, and Erin Trieb, among others.”
