photographic world. Admission is always free

Philippe Gras: Au coeur de Mai 68  Until 9 April 2018

To mark the 50th anniversary of the events of May 1968, the Alliance Française will host Au cœur de Mai 68, an exhibition based on the contemporary photographs of Philippe Gras. The Franco- Irish Literary Festival, dedicated to sexuality, will showcase contemporary literature and its representation of sexual relations which can often trace its roots back to the seismic events of May 1968. Philippe Gras (1942-2007) was an independent photographer and an independent mind. Specialised in music, dance and theatre events photography, he also captured some of the most iconic shots of the 68 student revolt.
