This event has been organised by Photography/ Archives/ Ireland, which involves three academics/ researchers – Ann Curran (DIT), Fiona Loughnane (NCAD) and Dr Orla Fitzpatrick (NMI) – who share an interest in photography and the archive. The talk takes place immediately before the opening of Laia Abril’s internationally celebrated project, On Abortion at the Copper House Gallery at 6pm, as part of the 2018 PhotoIreland festival.
