Belfast Exposed Street View

My work will be on display throughout November as part of the Street View exhibition in Belfast Exposed. The exhibition will include images from my recent project, Repaints, as well as previous projects Rural Fluorescent and Cottages of Quigley’s Point.

Belfast Exposed is delighted to launch Street View on Thursday 5th November - a digital gallery space of curated exhibitions to increase the accessibility and visibility of photography on the streets of Belfast. Street View is an initiative, which provides a multimedia exhibition experience, in response to the restrictions put in place due to covid-19 that prevent people from visiting galleries and viewing exhibitions.

Street View is a large digital window display that will showcase artwork by internationally renowned and local emerging photographers. Street View will launch with the work of Jill Quigley, as part of Belfast Photo Festival, followed by the work of Noel Bowler, Matthew Finn and Daragh McDonagh, among many others.

Street View is a 55” high brightness professional screen that provides a platform to exhibit contemporary photography complimented with audio narratives to an external audience on the streets of Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter. Jill Quigley’s work will be supported by audio of actor Monique Kelly who will describe Jill’s artwork and practice. Belfast Exposed believe photography is for everyone, it is accessible, meaningful and has the ability to tell stories, allowing us to create dialogue and reflect upon our history, inform our present and inspire a positive future. Street View is another opportunity to extend our vision beyond the confines of the gallery.
