Parsons Faculty Lydia Matthews featured in NeMe: Urban Emptiness at the Cyprus University of Technology

On Saturday, 4 February 2017, NeMe invites you to Urban Emptiness, a series of events consisting of an exhibition and a performance at the NeMe Arts Centre, a seminar at Pefkios Georgiades Auditorium (Cyprus University of Technology), and in selected locations in the Limassol city centre.

The exhibition and accompanying seminar present the results of the interdisciplinary investigation of emptiness and silence in Limassol and is a parallel project to related actions in various cities such as Athens, Edinburgh, Brussels and New York which all form part of the international network Urban Emptiness, curated by Geert Vermeire. The artworks, together with the seminar papers, contextualise the importance of real and imaginary/hidden landscapes in the urban environment of Limassol and explore different conditions of intimacy within new understandings. Through actions which involved various methodological strategies, the outcomes contribute to the discourse pivoting around the value of an experiential/performative understanding of silence and emptiness in urban life.
