Workshop: Walking Arts 2.0 
18-21 October 2021

The international practice-based project Collaborative Art Project which was successfully launched in 2020 by Professor Klitsa Antoniou with guest artist Maria Loizidou, is organized for a second year by Cut Contemporary Fine Arts Lab of the Department of Fine Arts at the Cyprus University of Technology. Within the framework of this program, artists with international recognition and significant work are invited to share aspects of their work with the students of the Department, as well as with the general public. The aim of the program is on the one hand to offer participants a "toolkit" for observing, recording and analyzing the work of the invited artists, which they will be able to adapt later in their own artistic process, and on the other hand to familiarize them with experimental artistic interventions of a collaborative nature. 

The second guest of the Collaborative Art Project is Geert Vermeire. He is a curator, poet and artist, from Belgian origin, moving constantly between Greece, Portugal and Brazil. Through collaborative processes, departing from the ethical involvement of cultural action, he has rooted his work in walking arts, extending it into sound art and digital art. He is one of the pioneers in locative media, with a focus on spatial writing, locative sound & performance and social practices. Since the early 2000s walking is  key to his artistic work,   centered around place and ecology, relating to our planet in crisis, unfolding around human connections, text and space, with works of arts, site-specific interventions and artistic walks engaging both with the landscape and with those walking through the landscape.

The Library Project is a biannual curatorial endeavour of the Cut Contemporary Fine Arts Lab of the Department of Fine Arts at the Cyprus University of Technology. It foregrounds the multimedia nature of contemporary art as well as ephemeral artistic practices that open a dialogue with the Municipal Library.

In collaboration with the Austrian Embassy in Cyprus and within the framework of the events of Weeks of the German Language 2021, the invited artist of this second edition of the Library Project is Evelyn Anastasiou.

On Saturday, October 30th, the Cypriot visual artist will be presenting a musical performance drawing from The Magic Flute [Die Zauberflöte] by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, entitled “Rejected Sounds of The Magic Flute”.

The Austrian composer's iconic opera, which has been presented to the Viennese public for the first time in 1791, is not only a magical tale with many hidden messages but also an ode to timeless, universal values, such as freedom, brotherhood, and love.

The international practice-based project Curatorial Art Academy Project involves intensive curatorial workshops featuring renowned international guest speakers from a number of distinguished institutions. The project is organized by Professor Klitsa Antoniou and the Cut Contemporary Fine Arts Lab of the Department of Fine Arts at the Cyprus University of Technology. Curatorial Art Academy Projects offer participants a program of lectures and workshops and an opportunity for them to present their curatorial ideas or their own artworks and receive feedback from invited speakers. The project will prepare participants to enhance their role as curators, will enable them to work around how to engage audiences more effectively by proposing alternative models of exhibition-making, institution-building, and social justice through art. A key objective of the project is to advance and establish a professional discourse, thereby encouraging a continuous evaluation of one's own and other's curatorial practice. It is aimed at both students and practicing artists.
