Sunday School #3
‘Letter From Derry’
Curated by Daniella Rose King
The third DAM PROJECTS Sunday School was Letter From Derry; a one-day exhibition and film screening that took place on 22 February, looking at culture and art in the city of Derry, Northern Ireland.
The accompanying exhibition Donʼt Let The Truth Get In The Way Of A Good Story featured artworks by London and Derry-based Ciarán Ó Dochartaigh, Mhairi Sutherland, Abridged and assembled ephemera. The exhibition explored the importance and interchangeability of truth, fiction and storytelling in the construction of a place or an artwork. Found materials and collected texts were interspersed among works of art (and missing archives) as an act of myth-making, and telling tales.
The documentary film – Letter From Derry – shot in the city features interviews with artists, curators and more, filmed in the city and surrounding countryside.
Exhibition opening times: 2 – 8pm
Documentary screening: 6pm
