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

About MExIndex

The MExIndex is an online 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 have been selected by invited curators who have mined the extensive database for works they consider of particular relevance and merit. This process of selection takes place on a regular basis, allowing the MExIndex website continually to expand its offering of Irish-based works.

MExIndex: aims

MEIndex 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.
