About The Exhibition

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.
