It has existed for several years now, with photographers from Japan capturing different countries in Europe, creating a bridge between Japan and the European continent. The photographs will be exhibited in Pafos (Ibrahim’s Khan) and in Nicosia (Home for Cooperation), spaces which serve exactly the purpose of uniting people through various cultural events.

The main purpose is to restore and document the historical memory of the past, but also to see how the past is reflected in the city today, making its people proud of their city and its achievements.

Musical events or events with references to the past social, political and economic life of Pafos and its residents, regardless of ethnic origin or religion, will round off the programme. Coordinator: Eliza Christoforou.

The Venus Paradox

Friday 29 September 2017 – Monday 15 January 2018
(Every day except Tuesday 10:00-17:00, Wednesday 10:00-22:00)

A contribution of the A. G. Leventis Gallery to the European Capital of Culture – Pafos2017: An ode to Cyprus’ absolute – and enigmatic – goddess through a series of events in various fields, including literature, dance, theatre and contemporary Cypriot artistic creation. The Cypriot Venus, goddess of mortals and immortals, comes to life through the art of the great masters from the Renaissance to the Baroque and from Realism to Impressionism and beyond. Entitled “The Venus Paradox”, this exhibition focuses on Venus as mother, woman, mistress and seductress, amidst love, life and death – through enticing stories of passion, envy, strife and deception.

This is an unprecedented collaboration with 17 leading museums and private collections in Europe and America.
