The first PhotoIreland Festival will take place this July and to celebrate, D-light Studios will be hosting the Homeless Gallery.
The HOMELESS GALLERY is an un-curated exhibition and is open to all photographers who wish to exhibit their work.
The whole idea of the HOMELESS GALLERY is that there are no entry criteria. It is open to all artists. What is eventually shown during an exhibition depends solely on the participants own self-censorship. We do not pick the participants everybody can show their work: star photographers, professionals, those just starting in photography, students and amateurs. We do not select their work either – we have no demands as to subject, technique, format or number of photographs shown. The photographs themselves can be shown in gilt frames, or just prints stuck on the wall.
The opening of the HOMELESS GALLERY will be on the 4th of July at 11.00am. A day before on 3rd of July all the participants arrive with their photographs and an assortment of equipment needed to hang them. Everybody then finds a piece of wall for themselves (or ceiling, or floor), and hangs their work. All sorts of unconventional forms of display are welcome. The gallery will stay open till Wednesday 7th of July.
The HOMELESS GALLERY exists to enable everybody to show their work publicly, those who for various reasons would have no chance to show their work to the world. It is for those who cannot afford a prestigious gallery, and for those who would never even think of doing so. It is a chance to be noticed for photography students, and those just entering photography. For professionals it is a chance of showing some of their more personal work that never finds its way into their commercial portfolios. For amateurs it is a chance of showing their work to people other than their nearest family and friends. For those who are shy, it is a chance to pull out those photographs hidden away in drawers.
This exhibition is a fantastic opportunity for professionals, amateurs, students and enthusiasts to congregate and collectively showcase their work without censorship.
