Visions of Hooley

Studio Gallery

4th Apr 2024 to 27th Apr 2024

About The Exhibition

A true icon of Belfast and a name that is synonymous with alternative community during the darkest days of the Troubles, Terri Hooley has been celebrated with a new book from writer-photographer Stuart Bailie.

After a friendship of 40 years, Stuart wanted to document the stories in his book, 'Terri Hooley: Seventy-Five Revolutions'. This exhibition of work builds on the visual dynamic of the publication.

It follows Hooley's unconventional style, from early days of anti-war protests, counter-culture magazines and developing rolls of film smuggled out of internment camps. It remembers a murder attempt in 1976, and features some previously unseen images found in Terri’s attic, ‘Visions of Hooley’ is an exhibition that will transport visitors to a time and place so rarely seen by those outside Terri's circle.Described by many as a love letter to Terri, the show will include a selection of photos from the book, representing some of the most emotive and captivating images of the man himself, his work, and his life as a radical from the 1960s to the present day.
