Damer House Gallery is proud to announce ‘Homeland’ - an exhibition of twenty-seven video and short films in collaboration with the Annual International Video Festival ‘Loop’ and Galeria Safia Barcelona. The exhibition runs until July 4th.

This programme of short video and films shows the work of international and Irish artists and filmmakers.

This is the first time Ireland has been invited to take part in the ‘Loop’.

Born in Barcelona in 2003 ‘Loop’ is the first film fair exclusively devoted to video and film shorts.

Each year a selection of artists’ films are selected by collectors and gallerists: Jean-Conrad and Isabelle Lemaître, Josée and Marc Gensollen, Haro Cumbusyan and Christopher Grimes (Christopher Grimes Gallery, Santa Monica). Participation in ‘Loop’ is exclusively based on the committee’s review of the artists’ proposed work.

The ‘Pool’ is the special projects and meeting ground associated with the event: a large open and versatile space to relax and meet where special projects that exceed the room and gallery structure take place. Film distributors, producers, universities to press and magazines meet and discuss their projects.

In parallel and developed in collaboration with the University of Barcelona, take place in the ‘Loop Studies’, a space for professional discussion that aims to provide a collective examination of the concerns and challenges emerging in the fields of production, diffusion and management of artists’ films and videos specifically and culture production more generally.

“This is such an interesting exhibition of contemporary video work.

Well worth travelling to see this show, which shows a vast array of approaches to video art making, from playful to contemplative, and all of it thought provoking. Well done, Damer Gallery” - Bernadette Burns, artist.
