Belfast Exposed Futures was set up in 2015 as a programme dedicated to supporting new photographic talent in Ireland. It supports the development and presentation of new work by six early career artists a year in a series of solo shows and mentorship sessions. It promotes these artists on an international level by creating significant opportunities for the artists to build their careers. Last year we represented Belfast Exposed Futures artists at Unseen Photo Fair Amsterdam and at Paris Photo in collaboration with Centre Culturel Irlandais. Participating artists include: Jill Quigley, Jan McCullough, Alberto Maserin, Joanne Mullin, Ruby Wallis, Peter Evers, Yvette Monahan, Andrew Rankin, Ciaran Og Arnold, Aisling McCoy.
