Topos Embodied. An exhibition of female-led, interdisciplinary art. 25 Jul - 15 Sept

Join us for the opening night of Topos Embodied, an exhibition by artists Justyna Borucka and Cat Vitebsky at the Museum of Classical Archaeology. Grab a glass of wine and be one of the first to view this show of new works, inspired by the intersections between the landscape of a Greek island and the postpartum body.

Recent mothers and founders of Paros Creatives Justyna Borucka and Cat Vitebsky respond to MOCA's cast collection via a return to the original marble quarry on Paros, the source of the marble from which so many ancient Greek masterpieces were sculpted. Theirs is a return, also, to the human figure through the idea of topos (in Greek, τόπος), exploring layers of time and transformation in myth, in the material of the marble itself, and in the worldview of the people of Paros today.

Topos Embodied runs from Tuesday 25 July to Friday 15 September 2023.
