Welcome to the AF Gallery

With a view to creating a new premium photographic space
in the city both to showcase local talent and to forge new
links in this area between France and Ireland, the Alliance
Française Dublin formed a committee of some of the leading
personalities (teachers, curators, artists) of the capital's
photographic world. Admission is always free


Would you like to exhibit your work?


Current Exhibition

- Artists who want to show their work in our Gallery should provide a portfolio of their work, website or CD, and CV including previous previous works ans exhibitions for the attention of the Gallery Committee which is responsible for the programming of exhibitions.

- The Alliance Française is not in a position to finance the production of the photographic material but undertakes to promote and officially launch the exhibition.

- Exhibitions usually run for approximately eight weeks.

NB: Artists should be aware that exhibitions take place in the Cocotte Restaurant at the Alliance Française, so this venue is not a dedicated gallery space.

Brian McIlvenny has specialised in the alternative photographic process  known as lith printing. This technique where diluted lithographic chemistry is used to develop over-exposed photographic paper results in bold graphic images with delicate warm tones. Variables in this unpredictable printing method ensure that each individual lith print personally hand-made by Brian cannot be repeated. In 2010, Brian McIlvenny was Lauréat du Prix Cafefoto at les Rencontres d’Arles and consequently exhibited in Paris as part of the official Mois de la Photo.
