With a view to creating a new premium photographic space
in the city both to showcase local talent and to forge new
links in this area between France and Ireland, the Alliance
Française Dublin formed a committee of some of the leading
personalities (teachers, curators, artists) of the capital's
photographic world. Admission is always free

"Dublin, Dancers and Dreams" by Anne-Sophie Gigan  Until March 2019

Anne-Sophie Gigan's Dublin, Dancers and Dreams exhibition portrays a variety of traditional dances using the backdrop of Dublin’s most famous landmarks as a backdrop (including our own listed building!. This 3 year-long photography project intended to capture the cultural richness and diversity that Dublin offers by welcoming cultures beyond its borders. The traditionalism of the dances and the modernity of the city blend in harmonious contrast, allowing foreign cultures to feel free to represent themselves in a land that welcomed them with open arms.
