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