1—2pm Sat 9 July
Dame St, Dublin 2
Naïve celebrates diverse faces in the Irish Art Landscape, and how the artist found comfort in photography during a difficult period of his life, when photography was the only thing he felt he could turn to. To the artist, Naïve is about the importance of being an artist in its purest form. The Naïve photobook is an extension of the What Cannot Be Seen exhibition, which took place in March of this year.
Creative Team: Olwen Wymer, Tina Adinga, And Wynne Kelly-Buttield
