Abstract or Summary

Interface Research Centre (http://interfacebelfast.com/ University of Ulster, Belfast, UK) organised a large-scale public art project situated across 36 city-centre locations in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Curator Anthony Haughey invited a group of artists to produce billboard images which appeared alongside advertising sites from 16 October to 16 November 2008. Artists: Faisal Abdu’ Allah, Simone Bitton, Susanne Bosch, Jean Chamoun, David Cook, Wendy Ewald, Andrew Freeman,Guerrilla Girls, Pat Griffin, Pauline Hadaway, Anthony Haughey, Sean Hillen, Alfredo Jaar, Sandra Johnston, Fiona Kearney, Peter Kennard, Kerstin Mey, Cat Phillipps, Anne Sarah Le Meur, Brian McClelland, Declan McGonagle, Mary McIntyre, Cahal McLaughlin, Peter Neill, Paul Seawright, Dan Shipsides. The billboard exhibition was part of series of events featuring the work of lens based artists and the representation of 'contested space'. The events explored how lens based practices shape perceptions of conflict, contested space and the public sphere both nationally and internationally.
