Mourning Becomes Electra I

Mourning Becomes Electra l was the first instalment of a collaborative artists exchange programme that enabled young artists from Derry to take part in a career development experience in Rome, based on the comparison and dialogue between cultures and disciplines. The four young artists used diverse creative approaches, working in collaboration with four graduates from the Istituto Superiore di Fotografia e Comunicazione Integrata.
This programme was the result of a conversation between Art Arcadia’s Paola Bernardelli and Rome based curator Maria Rosa Sossai and was developed as a collaboration between Void Art School and ISFCI. Curated by ALA Accademia Libera delle Arti, a platform for contemporary art and education based in Rome, the programme successfully ran for two years, had four residencies and helped 19 young artists develop their professional career in an international context.
