PHOTOGRAPHIC SHOW AT THE LIBERTY ARTS BUILDINGDubin – ‘Findings’ is the title of a photographic show opening soon at the new Liberty Arts Building (L.A.B.) on Foley St. The show takes an experimental approach to exploring the concept of everyday life as a performance. Audience participation is an important aspect of the show, which will include a self-portrait studio and a ‘mirror with a memory’.

The show will also feature a rare opportunity to step inside a camera obscura. These interactive elements will complement the exhibition of studio portraits from the turn of the last century, as well as video and photographic documentation of the re-development of the area historically known as ‘The Monto’.

‘Findings’ is curated by a group of third year students on the B.A. (Hons.) Photography course in D.I.T. A permanent record of the event will be kept at

‘Findings’ is the second ever show at the recently-opened Liberty Arts Building, and follows the very successful inaugural exhibition featuring Sean Hillen’s celebrated photomontages.

The LAB is located at the corner of Foley St. and Corporation St., just off Talbot St. ‘Findings’ will open with a wine reception on Thursday, 8th December, from 6-8pm. For further information, kindly contact Denis Dunne at 086-0857146.
