A powerful artwork, which uses shoes to symbolize people who were killed or badly injured during the conflict here, will be on display at the Ráth Mór Centre until Friday 27th June.
Curated by the Pat Finucane Centre, the ‘In Their Footsteps: Setting the Truth Free’ exhibition was displayed on O’Connell Street in Dublin earlier this month.
It features shoes belonging to victims of the Dublin-Monaghan bomb, the Miami Showband Massacre, of shootings in Derry, and of many more. The work will then go on show on Guildhall Square on Saturday 28th June.
Also on display at Ráth Mór this week is a new exhibition of black-and-white Camerawork photographs from the 1980s, compiled by Jim Collins. These include pictures of protests, funerals and street scenes.
The Portrait of a City group, meanwhile, have curated a room of images of Derry dating back to the 19th Century. PoaC have also produced a video-reel of stills taken from Guildhall Press’s latest book ‘2013: A LegenDerry Year’, which is being shown on screens throughout the centre.
Upstairs at the centre, there is an exhibition of sketches of shirt factory workers upstairs, produced by the artist Louise Walsh, who has now been commissioned by Hive Studios to make a series of short films on Creggan factory workers.
