So you love photography and Paris but somehow you are missing out on Paris Photo this weekend? What about all of the other amazing photography events in Paris this month? My guess is if you are reading this – you’re not in Paris! Well fret not because the wonderful Photo Ireland have organised Après Paris just for you! Yes you.
PhotoIreland presents ‘Après Paris’, a fundraising night dedicated to contemporary Photography with a special feature on Paris’ photographic events this month. With highlights from Paris Photo, Nofound Photofair, Photo Off, Photo Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Fotofever, Offprint, PhotoQuai 2011, this will be a night to remember.
The highlight of the evening will be Duke Special’s talk on ‘Under the Dark Cloth’, his recent collaboration at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (NY) to write all new songs inspired by photographs from the exhibition ‘Stieglitz, Steichen, Strand’.
Duke Special is playing The Sugar Club two days earlier on the 15th Nov.
Join us at The Sugar Club to celebrate, be in with a chance to win one of the fantastic raffle prizes (including a signed book of Martin Parr’s Best Books of the Decade’!), enjoy a few drinks, have a wee dance, get the news on PhotoIreland Festival 2012, and enjoy our special guests Barry W Hughes (supermassiveblackholemag.com) and Joby Hickey (jobyhickey.com).
We have a few more suprises up our sleeve, so keep checking for updates and mark the 17 November in your calendars! Head to The Sugar Club, we’ll be there from 8pm so you have even time to pop into the Gallery of Photography at 7pm for the launch of Dr. Justin Carville’s book ‘Photography and Ireland’ – highly recommended!
For more details on the launch of Dr. Justin Carville’s book ‘Photography and Ireland’, check out the Gallery of Photography’s Facebook page. For more information about Après Paris, you can check out the dedicated page on the PhotoIreland website and can RSVP for the event here.
