OXFORD PATRISTIC AND BYZANTINE STUDY WEEK

INAUGURAL EVENT:  “THE SACRED IN ART”

 EXHIBITION AND PRESENTATIONS

VENIA DIMITRAKOPOULOU, PAVLOS SAMIOS, and VANA XENOU

 

The context of the Study week is to explore the open dialogue between the timeless reality of sacred and its approach by thinkers, intellectuals and artists

at specific periods of time, like the Byzantine era. The Sacred in Art has been one of the topics on which we –as organizers- have focused our attention in

the past 10 years yet on which these three artists have dedicated thought, energy and work over a lifetime. Dimitrakopoulou, Samios and Xenou will

present their works in the space of Wolfson College and they will also talk about their thoughts regarding this invisible and yet palpable sacred nucleus

of art –ecclesiastical and secular – of the past and the present.
