The Copper House Gallery will launch NEW MATTERS, an exhibition of photographs by students studying on the BA Photography programme at the Dublin Institute of Technology, at 6pm on Thursday 23rd April 2015. NEW MATTERS presents 15 visual explorations of contemporary issues.   


NEW MATTERS showcases the work of students in the their third year of study on the photography programme at DIT. A range of backgrounds in Colombia, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland and Ireland is reflected in the exhibition's diverse perspectives on how contemporary photography can speak to complex cultural messages about identity, consumerism, changing social landscapes, temporality and impermanence.


This group show features work from 15 students who are currently engaged in the study of photography in the context of broader media practices and visual culture. This is an opportunity to have an early glimpse what interests them ahead of their graduation in 2016.


NEW MATTERS, a photographic exhibition by students in the third year of their four-year BA Photography programme at the Dublin Institute of Technology, runs at The Copper House Gallery from the 23rd April until 1st May 2015. Admission is free and all are welcome.
