The Department of Fine Arts is inaugurating the International Art Library Project, which is expected to be held every six months at the historic building of the Municipal University Library in Lemesos. The aim of the department is to become an experimental artistic and curatorial workshop, to become a major attraction for major visual artists from Cyprus and abroad, and to contribute to the interconnection of contemporary art with Cypriot society. A key component of the Library Project is the promotion of the multimedia nature of contemporary art, as well as the artistic and diligent practices that explore and comment on important issues in the contemporary socio-political context.
