Exhibition Paphos Recalling 2018

Recalling 2018

How does an artist reflect on the immediate past? As Almyra Hotel launches its 2019 season of art exhibitions, this question is brought front and centre in a show opening on 23 February. The group exhibition ‘#recalling 2018’, curated by artists Katerina Fukara and Arsentiy Lysenko, prompts artists to choose any event from 2018—political or economic, private or public, global or local, major or minor—and make it the focus of an artistic expression.
Artists were invited to use any medium or aesthetic practice to express themselves—including drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, video art, collage, poetry, music, or even a multimedia installation. The result is a collaborative reflection on 2018 for 2019—and one in a sequence of annual ‘#recalling’ exhibitions at Almyra.
Fifty-two artists are included in the exhibition—one for each week of the year, coincidentally. The roster of contributors includes potter Avgoustinos Michael, conceptual artist Rinos Stefani, painter Susan Vargas, printmaker Hambis Tsangaris, poet Davoud Safdarian, and the curators themselves.
The exhibition continues through 17 March.
Almyra Hotel, Poseidonos Avenue, Paphos
