Anthony Haughey, one of the nine featured artists in the Perlman Teaching Museum exhibition Post-Picturesque: Photographing Ireland, will launch the exhibition with Ireland in Crisis: Post Celtic Tiger Photography, on Friday March 3, 7 pm Weitz 236 with opening reception in the museum to follow.  Haughey is a distinguished photographer and teacher (at Dublin Institute of Technology) whose photographic and film work focuses on issues of identity, tensions around borderlands, and contemporary social, political pressures related to changing geography. 

This talk will illuminate his Settlements project, which explores the new "ruins" left behind after the collapse of the real estate market and the "Celtic Tiger" economic boom of the late 1990s and early 2000s.
