RADAR, Tumult

Launch 7th July 2022
Running 8th July-25th August 2022

The exhibition Images Are All We Have incorporates works by artists selected for this year’s RADAR — PhotoIreland’s Research and Development Artist Residency drawing from all Photography degrees of Ireland, from Diploma to MA, showcases photographic projects by five recent graduates. The 2022 recipients were selected by Inspirational Arts and PhotoIreland from nominations by eleven Photography programmes across the island. They are:

  • Ayesha Ahmad, Institute of Art Design and Technology Dun Laoghaire (IADT), BA (Hons) Photography
  • Daniel Breen, Technological University of the Shannon Midlands Midwest (TUS), BA (Hons) Photography, Film, Video
  • Gareth Byrne, National College of Art and Design (NCAD), CEAD Level 7 Photography and Digital Imaging
  • Ryan Allen, Ulster University Belfast Campus (UUB), BA (Hons) Photography with Video
  • Sarah Navan, Griffith College Dublin, BA Photographic Media

RADAR is aimed at providing adequate national and international opportunities for artists in order to engage with the broad arts context and consolidate their practice. It is an ambitious evolution of the Inspirational Arts Photography Award first established in 2009, now expanding its remit to provide critical opportunities with the support of PhotoIreland.

The residency provides 5 graduates with advice, guidance, and professional support, as well as a range of resources and materials to ensure substantial progress in the artists’ practice and career development: a research space in Dublin at The Library Project, with access to the PhotoIreland Collection of photobooks and scanning facilities, and includes a week-long production residency at Cow House Studios, Wexford. In addition, participants will benefit from a selection of opportunities presented by PhotoIreland’s Creative Europe networks as well as key events in the Photography calendar, in Ireland and abroad. They will be able to visit public and private events, thus gaining direct insight and experience from the artform’s arena.

You can get to know these artists and their graduate projects at PhotoIreland Festival this summer.
