Irish Architectural Archive 1916 Centenary Exhibitions
Thomas Johnson Westropp (1860-1922), was a noted Irish antiquary who used his camera as an archaeological tool. Westropp visited central Dublin in early May 1916 and for once turned his camera away from dolmens and passage graves to focus instead on the destruction wrought in the city by the Easter Rising. His images remain a vivid record of the violence and destruction of Easter Week.

‘Ebb and Flow of East Belfast’ is an exhibition of works by Belfast artist Bronagh Lawson reflecting the interface between Republican and Loyalist areas of East Belfast, a fault-lines where the reverberations of the events remembered in the ‘Decade of Centenaries’ are still felt in a real and dramatic way.
