David Kronn at the Lewis Gluckman gallery

Photograph from the Lewis Glucskman website. Click to go to the site.

The Lewis Glucksman gallery in Cork is currently showing a selection of works from the collection of David Cronn. This exhibition was first shown at the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) during the summer of 2011, and has been reworked by the curatorial team at the Glucksman. See the Glucksman website for more details.

We are planning a trip to see the exhibition on Sat 4th February. We’ll be meeting at 1pm at the main gate to UCC on Western Road. Anyone who wishes to join us is more than welcome. It would be great to meet some fellow Cork photographers!

Paris Photo

Join the dots - Paris Photo 2011 by Google

I was there last year, but didn’t make it this year. Perusing my daily selection of photo talk in the blogmosphere, I wish I had made it. Maybe next year … Anyway, James Danziger wrote a great review of Paris Photo 2011 on his blog (here). They’ve moved the main exhibition space away from the Louvre and into the Grand Palais, and sounds like it was a move for the better. Of course Paris Photo is not just about the main event – it’s about the hundreds of little galleries and spaces showing photography all over the city center. My favourite memories from last year are walking up through the 6th arrondissement to our hotel late at night, noses pressed against the cold glass of the little shop and gallery windows as we walked by, and an assortment of photographs gazing back out at us from the dimly lit interiors. And the pause for another glass of house red!

Northern Irish photographer Clare Galllagher recently sold an image to the Gift Of Gift Of program.

Gift of Gift of’s mission is to offer young art patrons an egalitarian opportunity to impact large collecting institutions and to aid emerging artists at a critical point in their careers.

Each year Gift of Gift of organizes an event in which photographs are exhibited for the consideration of collective purchase, to be offered as a donation to a major collecting institution. Event attendees receive a set number of votes with the purchase of event tickets. Attendees then vote on which of the exhibited artworks they think should become part of a museum’s permanent collection. Those artworks with the highest number of votes will be purchased with the pooled funds.

Clare earned a MFA Photography with Distinction at University of Ulster,Belfast, during 2009-2011. She has  exhibited in Belfast, Dublin, Montpellier, London, New York and Houston and will be shown later this year in Bratislava and Delhi. She is also a shortlisted artist for Saatchi’s New Sensations 2011.

Feeling Rejected? Try Portrait Salon!

From Portrait Salon’s Tumblr

Portrait Salon is a form of Salon des Refusés – an exhibition of works rejected from a juried art show – which has a long tradition as a fringe way of showcasing artists’ work that may otherwise go unseen. Devised by two portrait photographers, who are both based in London and are professionally involved in the city’s photographic community, Portrait Salon aims to show the best of the unselected entries from the National Portrait Gallery Photography Prize. We figure that, out of the 6000+ rejected entries, there must be some damn fine portraits which deserve to be shown.

We want to see these portraits, and we want to celebrate their brilliance with a projection (time and place to be confirmed) which no doubt will be accompanied by a little bit of a party. The projection will be curated, so we will be selecting the best portraits that we receive. But we expect to show a much higher percentage of work than at the National Gallery.

If you submitted work to the National Gallery Photography Portrait Prize and got rejected, please email a jpeg of your submission to portraitsalon@hotmail.com. The images need to be jpegs, at 1000 pixels on the longest edge. And please spread the word about this… we want as many submissions as we can!

Stag & Deer “Home” at Photo Festival Ireland

Stag & Deer opened their exhibition, “Home”, in association with Photo Festival Ireland 2011, on Friday last, July 1st.

“… “Home” is a group exhibition showing work from national and international photographers Karen Miranda Rivadeneria and Dante Busquets. The theme is built around the domestic and the structure of life within a home.  We are very interested in the idea of a place that we call home and what encompasses home; the physical nature of the interior and exterior, human interactions/relations, memories and possessions. …”

The exhibition is running on North Great Georges St. in Dublin, and is a great opportunity to see these two photographers, and in a space you wouldn’t often have a chance to occupy.

The Photographers

Karen Miranda Rivadeneira is a 2005 graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Since 2006, she been working on projects that deal with identity and intimacy, collaborating with native communities and relatives as subjects for various photo-based projects. Karen’s work, Other Stories, some of which is showing in Home, was granted the New Works Photography Award by Enfoco.

Dante Busquets attended the San Francisco Art Institute where he studied photography with artists Pirkle Jones, Jack Fulton and Reagan Louie. ante recently received the grant Descubrimientos PHE México DF from the festival PhotoEspaña ’09, and the Leica Grant at FotoFest in Houston TX, USA, 2008.

The Curators

Stag & Deer is an exhibition-making project facilitating artists’ requirements by providing contemporary art space to exhibit work. We deal mainly with the medium of photography and our goal is in showcasing emerging contemporary art to the public. Our plan is to have exhibitions in temporary galleries and in site orientated locations.

The exhibition is open Tuesday to Saturday, 12 – 4pm, running until July 15th.

Calculated Attack

Ta Daa!!!

Cork Analogue Photographers collaborated with Guerilla Exhibition for a calculated attack on the streets of Dublin, on Friday morning, July 1st. The location was kept top secret until the morning, then the twitter machine kicked in and it went viral!

Part of Photo Ireland festival 2011, we “attacked” a disused shopfront on Drury St., brightening up a drab and grimy left over from the tiger bubble with some street art.

This was a bit of a departure from Guerilla Exhibitions usual style of putting a number of different prints up, pop-up gallery style. Instead, in tune with Photo Ireland festival’s theme of collaborative change, a negative was selected from Cork Analogue Photographers, and scanned and blown up by the Guerrilla’s, to create an enormous (6m wide) print to cover the whole shop front. The blow up was printed on 185 sheets of ordinary printing paper (special thanks to Exhibit A in Dublin for the scanning and printing). This was the first of it’s kind to be seen in Dublin, and it looks fantastic. There was a lot of measuring, planning, talking, measuring, sticky dots and fingers crossed in the hope that it would all come together. Here’s some photos of the work in progress.
