Niamh Barry announces new exhibition “Now & Forever, Interpersonally Queer”

Following the success of her collection “No Queer Apologies”, Dublin-based film and digital photographer Niamh Barry has announced a new film photography exhibition to be launched in December.

According to Barry, “Now & Forever, Interpersonally Queer” will attempt to display the quality and strength of interpersonal ties and relationships between queer people.

Launching on December 9 in All My Friends pub on Meath Street, the exhibition will be free to the public.

“Some [relationships] are so powerful; our bonds with other queers make us feel more accepted in our lives than ever before. Accordingly, the notion of our “chosen queer family” which has existed for decades, attempts to deconstruct our perception of what a “family unit” can be,” states the exhibition description.

“This photography project aims to take these heteronormative structures and queer them. And present them for what they are: beautiful, joyful, messy, euphoric, chaotic, but significantly life-changing.”

Alongside the exhibition announcement, Barry has launched a GoFundMe and has appealed to the creative community for support in funding the show, noting the “crazy rise in film and printing costs” in recent months.

In the description of the GoFundMe, Barry stated: “With the crazy rise in film and printing costs, I require funds to host the show as I cannot self-fund it alone. And I need your help. Any donation of any size or simply circulating this GoFundMe will help immensely. I would be forever grateful as I require these funds to primarily print the exhibition (approx 1500-1600 euro) and hidden/minor expenses to bring it to life.”

You can donate to the exhibition GoFundMe here.

The launch event for “Now & Forever, Interpersonally Queer” will take place on Friday, December 9 from 19:00 to 22:00 and will feature music from Sammy Copley among others.
