Books in Life - a photographic exhibition

Jean Marc Godes19 June to 30 June in Dublin City Library and Archive, Pearse Street.

Books in Life – Livres en Vie is a Photographic Exhibition by Jean Marc Godès.
Jean Marc Godès was born in Guadeloupe and currently lives in France. Jean Marc, photographer, leads an artistic research dedicated to promotion of books and writing. He carefully creates scenes with books as the central actors. Godès offers us many imaginative answers to the question ‘what a book can be and do’. The collection of photographs shows how books transform and ignite our imagination.
The photographs from his collection "BOOKS IN LIFE" have found a natural place in book networks, libraries, book fairs, literacy agencies ... but also in spaces dedicated to contemporary art in France and abroad.
Through this first audiovisual piece, he still continues to use his artistic research in exploring moving images.

Books in Life Exhibition

Around the Table Exhibition

Around the TableJune in the Central Library .

Around the Table, a Dublin Culture Connects project about food in Dublin connected with communities old and new across Dublin’s historic Central Area. An exhibition of photographs, taken by artist Jeanette Lowe over a five-month period as part of Dublin’s Culture Connects: National Neighbourhood, will be on view in the Central Library (Ilac Centre) until the end of June. This project worked collaboratively with communities, artists and The National Library of Ireland tracing the passage of food from the docks to the markets and from our streets to our tables.

The images on display reflect strong communities built on camaraderie and loyalty forged through work, through shared interests and passions, through family ties and through networks of support. They reflect the life generated by the food we buy, cook and share moving through the city.
