The Ground Beneath Our Feet: Four Artists from Cyprus Discuss Archaeology and Contemporary Art

September 30, 2016

 

Artist talk at The British Museum, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3DG

 

Is reconstructing the past as speculative as constructing the future? Exploring the politics and poetics of the 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, Department of History of Art, Birkbeck, University of London.
 

Held under the auspices of the High Commissioner for the Republic of Cyprus Euripides L. Evriviades to celebrate the Cyprus National Day.

The Cultural Section of the Cyprus High Commission promotes Cyprus History and Culture in the UK.

 

We host, organise and support initiatives and events, and create collaborations with cultural institutions, educational bodies, and universities. Our primary aim is to engage the Cypriot community and the wider public in a dynamic cultural dialogue. To this end, we support cultural production by emerging artists in various forms of art (music, theatre, fine arts, film) by providing platforms to show their work and by facilitating their collaborations with international institutions.
