Presented as part of the city-wide collaborative event, "Charlotte Celebrates its Celtic Traditions", Troubled: Photography, Film and Video from Northern Ireland brings together images of contemporary life in Northern Ireland.
This multipart exhibition responds to the nearly 30 years of sectarian conflict between Catholics and Protestants, known as the "troubles", and reflects "troubled" themes of uneasiness.
