Join Hillyer and the Washington Sculptors Group at the Center for Hellenic Studies for a unique opportunity to hear from artists and curators whose work examines time and history to influence their contemporary practices, featuring Dr. Katia Arfara, Patricia Sannit, and Katherine Akey.
Dr. Katia Arfara was the curator for the 2018 Onassis Fast Forward Festival Athens in which artists working in Greece and internationally explored the defining role archaeology plays in forming national narratives, 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.
