This eventful day will be filled with enriching experiences, offering a deep dive into the narratives of memory, identity, and possibility. Join us, as we embark on a journey through three distinct rooms, each curated to evoke emotions, provoke contemplations, and spark meaningful conversations.

Room 1: Memory and Observance

Step into a world of vibrant memories and profound observance as we explore works by Marina Emphietzi, Ilkan Koral, Androulla Michael, Michael Minas, Odyseas Odysseos, Michalis Pantelidis, Doros Partasides, and Maria Trimikliniotis. From intense brushstrokes depicting traumatic events to abstract expressions of personal journeys, these artists invite us to reflect on the past and its ever lasting impact.

Room 2: The Land and its People

Discover the materiality of the land and the immutability of its people through the masterful works of Michalis Karaiskos, Frixos Papantoniou, Hamit Üçok, and Chris Neofytou. From intimate portraits to sweeping landscapes, these artists transport us to the heart of Cyprus, where history and identity converge in a celebration of culture and heritage.

Room 3: Window to the Future

Open your mind to the possibilities of tomorrow with abstract interpretations of the island's colours and light by Savvas Theofanous, Christos Michaelides, Frixos Papantoniou, and Helen Michael. Through layers of memory and history, these artists challenge us to envision a world beyond the visible, inviting us to explore the depths of imagination and inspiration.
