Past Belfast Exchange Gallery Exhibition
“Oh Well, It Was Red Anyway"
Ciarán Óg Arnold - 14 October to 3 December 2016
Belfast Exposed are pleased to present new work by Ciarán Óg Arnold. Since publishing his critically acclaimed first book I went to the worst of bars hoping to get killed, but all i could do was to get drunk again with MACK, the artist has continued to pursue an interest in the expression of masculinity within the claustrophobia of contemporary small town Ireland.
Ciarán Óg Arnold (b.1977) completed an MFA in photography at University of Ulster in 2012. He won the prestigious MACK First Book Award in 2015. His book received extensive press including features in The Guardian, The British Journal of Photography and The Royal Photographic Society. Arnold has recently exhibited at Seen 15 Gallery in London as part of Peckham 24, during Photo London. He has also exhibited at the Gallery of Photography, Dublin, and Les Rencontres d’Arles, France.
To accompany this exhibition we have produced a limited edition A2 poster print available to buy at £25. Please contact ciara@belfastexposed to reserve your print.
