“Contemporary migrants--like the countless travelers who came to Cyprus before them--view the island through their own prism of distance and, often, displacement. They change and are changed by the island. CVAR's unique collection serves as the backdrop for "Cyprus through The Eyes of Migrants" within the context of International Museum Day 2022.
A creative setting, the CVAR provides a natural and fitting link between Cyprus' multicultural past and its increasingly diverse present and future. By highlighting the work of artists with a migrant background currently in Cyprus, "Cyprus through The Eyes of Migrants" will explore bold and new perspectives, adding them to the mix within historic Nicosia”
