PhotoIreland announces the programme, guest curators, and exhibiting artists for the 14th edition of Ireland’s International Festival of Photography and Image Culture, taking place between 30 June–27 August 2023.

Vibrant, friendly, all-inclusive: a festival for all to enjoy, this year’s edition brings to Ireland contemporary photography by celebrated artists from diverse cultural backgrounds through a series of guest-curated exhibitions by internationally established curators—including newly commissioned and rarely seen works, and hundreds of publications to discover at the art book fair, alongside an engaging public talks programme with a series of discursive events taking place online and in-person.

The interlinked and collaboratively conceived two main exhibitions are organised by international curators Catherine E. McKinley and Renée Mussai, with artists Aida Silvestri, Atong Atem, Bernice Mulenga, Frida Orupabo, Heather Agyepong, Hélène Amouzou, Lola Flash, Mónica de Miranda, Phoebe Boswell, Silvia Rosi, Zanele Muholi, and others to be announced.

Artist Ethel-Ruth Tawe delves into Ben Krewinkel’s Africa in the Photobook and Rubén H. Bermúdez presents a solo show around his book And you, why are you black?

This edition sees the return of the festival’s summer art book fair, first launched in July 2011, now renamed and rebranded as Tsundoku, and the launch of a new mentorship programme entitled RELAY. With the full details coming soon, take a sneak peek at PhotoIreland Festival 2023!
