Mondays at Arcade
THE non-profit cultural organisation Stoa Aeschylou has announced the its third activity, which is part of the experimental
art project Arcade Project.
Called Mondays at Arcade, its aim is the creation of a series of exhibitions dealing with an art event not necessarily
as a result of a long-term cooperation but as something that is directly related with the sense of "Time".
The request is that artists should submit their proposals and create works of different genres of art, inside the space
of Stoa Aeschylou, that will be directly related either to the space it self and/or to the surrounding area in the old town
The proposals may deal with all kinds of activities. For example art, experimental performances, acts using live media,
projects involving electro music combined with optical presentation, video installations, interactive projects, locative media
and so on.
The final result will be presented every Monday, from November until December in the Stoa Aeschylou space.
The artists have from Wednesday to Sunday to work on their projects. After that, the final outcome will be presented on
the following Monday at a time and duration they will choose to (either day or night and duration of up to 24 hours).
The activity will commence in November 2008 and will last until the end of December 2008, for nine Mondays in a row.
During the examination of the applications, the organisation will take into consideration if they meet the criteria and
aims of the activity.

This will be a brilliant debut. Stavri was born in Nicosia in 1958 and studied at the American Academy and later at the

Having seen, recently, all of her work I can honestly say that Cyprus has yet another original talent. A brilliant debut.
