Archaeological practices in contemporary Cypriot art
The ground beneath our feet
Friday 30 September, 18.30 BP Lecture Theatre
Is reconstructing the past as speculative as constructing the future? Exploring the politics and poetics of archaeological finds, four prominent artists from Cyprus – Alev Adil, Haris Epaminonda, Maria Loizidou and Christodoulos Panayiotou – will discuss the ‘archaeological turn’ in contemporary Cypriot art. Developed by Christina Lambrou and Elena Parpa, the artists’ talks will be followed by a round-table discussion chaired by Dr Gabriel Koureas, Birkbeck, University of London.
Organised in collaboration with Cyprus High Commission Cultural Section under the auspices of the High Commissioner for the Republic of Cyprus Euripides L Evriviades to celebrate Cyprus’ National Day.
