Imago Loci translates as 'an image of the local'. This title follows Imago Mundi- an image of the world -a collection of works commissioned by Italian collector Luciano Benetton' which culminated in a project and publication in 2016. Size constraints of 10cm x 12cm were placed on the works by the format of the book. The Irish participants, which featured a number of Creative Exchange Studio members, were curated by Ciara Gibbons and reflected the diverse range of artists working throughout the island of Ireland.

All of the exhibiting artists are members of Creative Exchange Artists’ Studio; a group of 13 artists based on the Newtownards Road. Their artistic practices encompass painting, illustration, digital art, printmaking, ceramics, moving image, installation art and social engagement.
Here, each artist presents work within the 10cm x 12cm format, which is representative of the research, eclectic ideas and object interests of studio members. The size constraint of each work enables them to be drawn together in a celebration of the individual within a collective whole.
Creative Exchange would like to invite you to attend a closing event for the exhibition on Saturday 23 September from 2pm - 5pm.
