What: Museum of Contemporary Photography of Ireland.
When: First presentation 4-28 July 2019. 
Where:
First presentation at The Printworks, Dublin Castle, with the kind support of OPW.
Why: The Museum of Contemporary Photography of Ireland is a practice based research project run by PhotoIreland that aims to create the ideal prototype space to actively engage with Visual Culture and Critical Thinking today. Over the next years, the museum will present an evolving model that will publicly investigate experimental and critical propositions in aspects relating to museology, curation, cultural policy and Arts management.

The research sets an important departure towards a new arena where Art and cultural practices and their socio-political context can be both enjoyed and examined in a richly participatory way, with the use of contemporary methodologies.

This project is part of the Critical Academy research on Photography in Ireland.
