Unfamiliar Familiarities | Group Exhibition at Belfast Exposed

11 January to 24 February
Exhibition Preview: Thursday 11 January, 6pm

Unfamiliar Familiarities, this year’s annual Stage 3 Exhibition, is in response to Peter Mitchell’s series ‘A New Refutation of the Viking 4 Space Mission’, which follows the concept that “an alien has landed from Mars and is wandering around Leeds with a degree of surprise and puzzlement”. This exhibition takes that idea and applies it to items, ideas, experiences and environments perceived by each participant.

Exhibiting Artists:
Brian Stafford, Chris Boyd, David Abrahams, Diane McNeill, Edward Smyth, Jade Best, Melanie Law, Michael Hillis, Peter Glover,, Ronan Duddy, Ronnie Kirk and Sheila McAvoy.

This exhibition brings together a group of participants from our Stage 3 photography courses. Belfast Exposed currently offer Stage 3 courses in Street, Portrait, Landscape and Documentary Photography. You can view our range of upcoming courses on the Belfast Exposed website.
