Bands, Beacons, and Bystanders
George Robb solo exhibition Bands, Beacons, and Bystanders will be premiered in Duncairn Art Centre, Belfast.

The preview is on Friday 6th October @ 7pm -9pm. The exhibition will continue until 24th October.

Robb’s photographs explore the ‘Orange’ band and ‘Unionist’ culture of the 11th night bonfires and 12th of July parades.
It is an observation of individuals in celebratory events simultaneously exploring changes in cultural and political shifts.

Robb is particularly interested in the interdependence and relationships established in the parade with the bands and the audience.

The images play on the energy created by the community through the experience of fun, joy, and camaraderie; however, he acknowledges, with strong military associations and often considered anti-nationalist it has conflicting connotations.
In this exhibition, Robb poses an alternative narrative in post-conflict Northern Ireland. Highlighting this perspective is giving a voice to the community through observation and presentation rather than judgment.
