About the Exhibition

The Tenth Man have teamed up with The MART Gallery for a new exhibition in support of MASI featuring a screening of the the recently released film THIS LAND, which looks at the different ways people on this island experience Irishness and identity and an exhibition of ten pieces of work from some of Ireland’s most exciting photographers. 

These ten photographers, whose work encapsulates the constantly evolving and shifting sense of what it means to be from this land, were asked to propose works that represent the joy, struggle or journey of identity.

The 10 original A2 framed works are available to purchase for €150, with a limited run of 10 x A3 prints per artist available for €30.  All proceeds raised through the sale of the original photography and prints to go directly to Movement of Asylum Seekers Ireland (MASI).

It also explores the impact of racism and Direct Provision on the outlook of the people interviewed. The film features poet Felispeaks, 2FM radio presenter Tara Stewart, journalist Bounce The P.R.O., musician Senita Appiakorang, chef Pedro Ferraz, music group NUXSENSE, activists Beyond Representation, journalist Dean Van Nguyen, vintage store owner Ayuba Salaudeen, artist manager Ivan Klucka, chef Gunmoo Kim, dancer Footrocker, activists Black Pride Ireland and athlete Jeremiah Moulonso, as well as work from Asylum Archive.
