In Residence

Permanent exhibition

Conor Horgan

Well-known as a screenwriter and filmmaker, Conor Horgan is also one of Ireland's great portrait photographers who encapsulates the singularity of ordinary folk, performers and world leaders alike. Following his residency at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in 2017, Conor based himself in Paris for the next three years capturing the city and its inhabitants. CCI commissioned him to return regularly to create a suite of portraits of our artists in residence. This beautiful and perceptive body of work is exhibited on CCI’s main historic staircase as testimony to the hundreds of artists who have developed ideas and digested daily life in the capital as they went up and down its well-worn steps.
