Parthenon Symposium-The Socratic Dialogues 
General Event Information
Event Category:
Community Events
Dates and Times:
February 6, 7:00PM-8:00PM
Art and philosophy often walk hand in hand: think of Raphael’s fresco The School of Athens in the Vatican Museum. Artist Kristin Llamas was intrigued by the idea of Socrates’ way of teaching by asking questions and she used that idea as the basis for the paintings in her exhibition The Socratic Dialogues on view in the Parthenon through February 9th. The eleven large-scale paintings, which consider such fundamental questions as What Is Courage and What Is Truth, were inspired by mini Socratic dialogues held throughout the city over the course of a year, coupled with her own response to current events.
On February 6th, Llamas will discuss her process, the paintings themselves, what she learned and the relationship between philosophy and art. The lecture will take place in the gallery with the paintings.
Llamas, born in Rochester, NY, in 1982, chose to pursue her art training in a three-year apprenticeship with mural artist Cary di Valentin rather than in a formal degree program at either of the prestigious art schools where she was accepted.
Llamas’ paintings explore topics of social, political and historical interest. Much of her work is project based—collaborations, installations, and symposia—where she works in an interactive and responsive way with a particular community.
Her work frequently includes stitched bits of canvas or other objects attached to the painting’s surface. These elements give added texture and interest to her work.
The lecture, which sponsored by The Conservancy for the Parthenon and Centennial Park, will take place at the Parthenon at 7:00pm, with a reception following. Admission is free, but reservations are required (862-8431).
