MexIndex - free database of experimental visual arts and image works by  Irish artists

About MExIndex

MExIndex aims to collect, collate, and make information available on Irish-based experimental film/moving image works and to promote critical writing about this visual art genre.

The MExIndex is a searchable database of experimental moving image works classified as Irish either because their creator is Irish or the work relates to Irish culture and society. The works displayed on the MExIndex website are of particular relevance and merit, and have been selected from an extensive underlying unpublished database. The process of selection takes place on a regular basis, allowing the MExIndex website to continually expand its offering of Irish-based works.
