Marcia Moreno, a Brazilian artist and art professor and myself organised a collaborative art exchange which involved travelling to Brazil. The theme was Home, Home away from Home. This was an artistic examination of the native and immigrant (in Ireland or Brazil) experience of trying to create a home. Together with Marcia we created a set of reciprocal lectures, workshops, discourses and group exhibitions at Chapeco University in Santa Catarina, Brazil and at the Pearse Museum in Dublin, Ireland.
Below is a small selection of work by students and a flavour of the art exchange.
