Opening of “Lighthouse”

Opening of “Lighthouse”

The Centre Culturel Irlandais is delighted to present the premiere showing of four monumental photographs by Donovan Wylie, one of Ireland’s most renowned photographers. Immediately following the June 2016 referendum on Brexit, Wylie, a Belfast-based artist, began to photograph singular lighthouses on key dates, glimpsed from the opposing coastlines of France and different parts of the United Kingdom - England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. 

Programme of the evening:

5.30pm
Before the opening, the photographer Donovan Wylie will be in conversation with the writer Chris Klatell in part of the exhibition Lighthouse - the talk will take place at the CCI
