Opening Hours

Gallery opening hours: 11am - 5pm, Tuesday to Saturday 

Belfast Exposed comprises of a contemporary gallery, futures gallery, community engagement programmes, photography training courses, bookshop, reading room and archive.

Belfast Exposed is Northern Ireland’s principal gallery of contemporary photography, commissioning, publishing and showing work by artists and photographers from Northern Ireland and across the world. 

Founded in 1983 by a group of local photographers as a challenge to media representation of the city’s experience of conflict, our work continues to reflect a socially engaged ethos, while responding to contemporary currents in photography and politics further afield. Located in Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter, our exhibitions, publications and photography projects with artists and local communities are usually accompanied by related talks, community events and discussions.

Open for browsing during gallery hours, our Bookshop stocks a range of thought provoking photographic, arts and social sciences titles, while our Reading Roomprovides welcoming space for study and research, with access to an extensive collection of books and reference materials. A selection of almost 2,000 images from our archive has been digitised and made available for browsing on the iMac in the upstairs Exchange Gallery. A smaller selection is accessible online.

Belfast Exposed also provides Photography Courses for the general public and designs bespoke photography training for schools, colleges, businesses and community groups.

Gallery opening hours during exhibitions: 11am to 5pm, Tuesday to Saturday.
