Homecoming I

Following the success of Mourning Becomes Electra in 2013, Homecoming was the first leg of the second year of an artists exchange programme between Void Art School and ISFCI Rome, curated by Maria Rosa Sossai and Claudia Rampelli from ALA Accademia Libera delle Arti.
This cultural exchange was held at Void Art School, a multi-discipline art school within Void Art Centre, led by Damien Duffy. Five photography graduates from Rome visited Derry and took part in a two-week-long workshop exploring the medium of photography within the context of contemporary art. Teaming up with five young artists from Void Art School, they collectively created work that was later exhibited both in Derry and back in Rome. The also had the opportunity to meet with exhibiting artists and associated practitioners within contemporary art practice in Northern Ireland. Some of the participating artists from both cities are still collaborating after having formed the META artist collective.
