Exhibition Running 14 Sep-6 Oct

Each year, the Parallel Intersection event acts as a bridge between two cycles of the four-year PARALLEL European Photo Based Platform project. The aim of the platform is to provide opportunities and facilitate for emerging artists and curators, to step onto the international scene of photography, through the cooperation of 18 European photographic organisations. This September, Parallel Intersection Budapest will close the second cycle of the programme and open the third, taking place in the Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center. As the Irish members of the Platform, we are looking forward to attending a series of meetings, planning for the year ahead, meeting the new cycle’s international artists and curators, and re-visiting the works created by the previous cycle’s artists. During the Intersection, the new cycle artists will also be paired with their tutors, curators, and venues for the following year, in Tutoring Sessions.

A public, large group exhibition will be held at the Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center, divided into two sections: Showcase and Zeitgeist. The jury selected Irish Sweden-based artist Cian Burke to be part of the 3rd Cycle.

This means that, every year, there has been
at least one Irish artist participating in
and benefiting from the platform.


Cian Burke‘s work was presented last July as part of the latest edition of New Irish Works, exhibited during PhotoIreland Festival 2019, at the Museum of Contemporary Phototgraphy of Ireland. His work will be presented at the Showcase. Artist Róisín White, from the previous 2nd Cycle, will feature her project Cross the Child’s Palm with Silver at Zeitgeist. This work was created during her participation in the platform process, and was exhibited at the Parallel Platform show in Dublin she was indeed also part of the New Irish Works 2019.


The artists selected in 2019 for the coming Parallel Platform 3rd Cycle will showcase their latest projects in the Project Room of the Capa Center.
