Artist as Time Traveler: Reflecting on Time and History to Expand our Understanding of Contemporary Culture
Join Hillyer and the Washington Sculptors Group at the Center for Hellenic Studies for a unique opportunity to hear how artists across the world examine time and history to influence their contemporary practices, featuring Katherine Akey Lee, Dr. Katia Arfara, and Patricia Sannit.
Dr. Katia Arfara is the Artistic Director of Theatre and Dance, at the Οnassis Cultural Centre Athens and was the curator for the 2018 Fast Forward Festival in which artists working in Greece and internationally explored the defining role archaeology plays in forming national narratives and collective memory, and cultural heritage. Patricia Sannit is an Arizona-based sculptor who has worked on archaeological sites in the Middle East and Ethiopia, excavating and studying early cultures and art. Sannit’s life and work are influenced by her research into the continual movement and migration of people, ideas, and culture. Katherine Akey is a DC-based photographic artist whose work has been inspired in part by her experiences as the daughter of archaeologists.
Each panelist will give a presentation about their work, followed by a moderated discussion and audience q+a. Reception immediately after.
Doors open at 1:30pm
