Irish Summers by Harry Gruyaert
Gallery FIFTY ONE is excited to announce its new show 'Irish Summers' by the renowned Belgian photographer Harry Gruyaert (1941). This exhibition brings together a selection of images the artist made on trips to Ireland over the period 1983-84. While some of these photographs are included in a number of Gruyaert's previous projects and books (e.g. 'Rivages'/'Edges'), this is the first time that they are presented as a series. An eponymous new FIFTY ONE Publication will be launched for the occasion of this exhibition.
27th Bayeux Calvados-Normandy Award for War Correspondents
Break indifference to conflicts. It's in this logic that the Bayeux Calvados-Normandy Award for War Correspondents was created. For the past 27 years Bayeux, a place that exemplifies peace and freedom, has been paying tribute to those who prevent oppressors from acting undisturbed and with impunity. Every year the Town of Bayeux, the Department of Calvados, the Normandy Region and their partners join forces to hold a unique event dedicated to a unique profession. The job of war correspondents is essential and serves as a barometer for democracies, yet it is little known and can be subject to abuse.
Acts of Erasure at MOCA
Acts of Erasure brings the two distinct artistic practices of Fatma Bucak and Krista Belle Stewart into dialogue. Bucak identifies as both Kurdish and Turkish. Stewart is a member of the Upper Nicola Band of the Nselxcin Nation in British Columbia, Canada. This pairing opens space for conversations around political identity concerning land and heritage, methodologies of historical repression and interpretation and the act and effects of erasure.

L’oeil Urbain Photographic Festival
Sub-Saharan Africa is highlighted in this eighth edition of the Urban Eye festival; a territory of 48 states located south of the Sahara, so vast that it might seem futile to hope to encompass it and to define its contours in terms of photography. The pitfall is indeed to approach the subject from the angle of stereotypes, of the postcard in search of picturesque and a certain miserabilism where it would only be a question of slavery and colonialism. Generalities cannot take precedence over the contemporary reality of this vast territory, above all remarkable for its diversity. The vitality of current photography in Africa is a reflection of this excitement of a continent in turmoil in a globalized world; an emerging contemporary photography carried by a young generation of talented African photographers.
