Art Lecture: Image of Woman @ Teatro, Espai la Senieta Moraira
Jun 24 @ 10:30 – 12:30
Art Lecture: Image of Woman @ Teatro, Espai la Senieta Moraira

Date: Monday 24th June 2019 10:30

Location: Salón de Actos, Espai la Senieta, Moraira (next to the large free car park)

Subject: Image of Woman

Lecturer: Cheda Panajotovic

We often witness a young mother with her little girl in tow, who in turn, is absorbed into a baby doll cradled in her loving little arms. With such a sight, most of us see nature gently but surely bringing up a future little mother. That sentence will or should have placed an ‘Image of Woman’ into everyone’s head.

In this talk you will be shown images of woman from the stone age to the ladies of Hollywood, the royal courts as well as the ‘ordinary’. I hope to show you images known to us all, but in the main, these will be images dear to my heart after my life-long involvement with the world of art, fame and infamy.

I cannot promise that I will show ‘woman’ as you may see her, but you will certainly learn what THE IMAGE OF WOMAN means to me.

Cheda

Ancient Egypt @ Salon de Actos, Espai la Senieta
Sep 16 @ 10:30 – 12:00
Frequency: Monthly: 3rd Monday, at 10:30
Venue: Salón de Actos, Espai la Senieta, Moraira

Group leader: David Rohl

Bedouins passing by Mount Sinai

The Ancient Egypt group is dedicated to the study of pharaonic Egypt from the Predynastic Age to the absorption of the Nile valley into the Roman Empire in 30 BC. Over the course of the project, we will be covering many different aspects of Egyptian civilisation, some of which you won’t be able to read about in popular books on the subject. But, don’t let that put you off! The presentations will be easy to follow and full of wonderful visuals … so you can just relax and let the magic of Egypt and the rest of the Ancient World wash over you like the gentle waters of the River Nile.

The group is led by one of the world’s best-known Egyptologists – writer, TV presenter, renowned international lecturer, historian and archaeologist, David Rohl, who has spent more than fifty years exploring the landscapes of the ancient Near East – from the high mountain valleys of Eden in mythical Persia to the vast barren deserts bordering ancient Kemet (the ‘Black Land’ = the Nile valley). He is best known for his internationally acclaimed TV documentary series ‘Pharaohs and Kings’, ‘In Search of Eden’, ‘The Egyptian Genesis’, and as a leading figure in the multi-award-winning cinema documentary ‘Patters of Evidence – The Exodus’. David has also written five bestselling books translated into twelve languages.

David Rohl, presenter of Pharaohs and Kings (Channel Four and Discovery Channel 1995).The group meets every third Monday of the month at the Salon de Actos, in la Senieta theatre, Moraira, starting at 10.30am and finishing around midday. Each meeting begins with a seventy-minute (or so) presentation on the day’s subject, employing David’s stunning visuals and informative graphics. Group members are then encouraged to participate in a Q & A discussion for the remaining fifteen minutes of the session.

Due to David’s international lecturing, archaeological research and TV commitments, there may be occasions in the year when he will be away and the lecture is postponed to the following month. However, confirmation of each lecture will be notified to all members, approximately one week before the meeting, giving the lecture title and a short explanation of the subject.

The monthly talks are not always entirely restricted to Egypt, since David will be throwing in the occasional lecture on the history and archaeology of the Old Testament, the ‘Heroic Age’ of Bronze Age Greece, the Minoan bull-leaping culture of Crete, the warlike Hittites of Anatolia (modern Turkey), and the ancient civilisations of Mesopotamia (modern Iraq and Syria), as well as some ‘specials’ on completely different but nevertheless fascinating topics such as the legendary epic tale of the Trojan War and the Romano-Spanish traditions surrounding the Sangreal (‘Holy Grail’).

Art Talk: Outdoor Art in Spain @ Salon de Actos

Lecturer: Peter Atkinson

The presentation will explore a national selection of the art that can be viewed in Spain’s outdoors, covering the work of A-listers and unknowns.  It will range from whole buildings  (religious, civic and residential) to minor architectural details, and will include art that is transient or trivial as well as the monumental and permanent.  We’ll look at bells, clocks, fountains and streetlights; at saints, pilgrims, crosses and cloisters; and at local and national heroes.

Banksy has said that “art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable”.   A few of the items that we look at may meet one or both of these lofty aspirations.  Less ambitiously, I hope you’ll find all the work to be pleasing or interesting.

Art and History Talk: The Double Life & Amazing works of Grayson Perry @ Salón de Actos, Espai la Senieta, Moraira

Art and History Talk: The Double Life & Amazing works of Grayson Perry @ Salón de Actos, Espai la Senieta, Moraira

Date: Monday 14th October 2019 10:30

Location: Salón de Actos, Espai la Senieta, Moraira (next to the large free car park)

Subject: The Double life and Amazing Works of Grayson Perry

Lecturer: John Hopwood

 

It would be very difficult to find another artist anywhere near as colourful and as eccentric as Grayson Perry!

He suffered an extremely traumatic childhood during which he discovered his penchant for wearing women’s clothes.

This was followed by times of being a penniless young ‘punk’ living in a squat in London.

However, he chose his fellow squatters well with one being Stephen Jones, now probably the most respected, radical and important milliner of the 20th and early 21st centuries and the other Boy George who needs little introduction.

During this time Perry decided to become an artist and his studies were eventually rewarded with a BA from Portsmouth Polytechnic in 1982.

He started his career as a very controversial ‘Transvestite Potter’, but he has since become a Turner-Prize-winning artist – the only potter ever to receive that award – a BAFTA-winning documentary maker, an author, a social commentator, a museum curator, a Reith lecturer and a devoted husband and father.

In addition to his celebrated pottery creations Grayson Perry is also a creator of the most wonderful and colourful tapestries woven on Flemish looms and of minutely detailed large scale etchings.

He is a consummate self-publicist, which may have been necessary at the beginning of his career, but no longer now that he is one of the most well-known British artists alive.

This talk is full of humour, of pathos and occasionally, perhaps, what may be considered by some, rather offensive works of this amazing and utterly unique artist.

Art & History Talk: Chicanery in Art @ Espai la Senieta

Lecturer: Rosalind Miranda

The Art World, when you look into it, must be one of the strangest institutions that exists today. It is fuelled on the one hand by greed, by people who want to make money; and on the other hand by gullibility, by people who are too willing to believe what they hope might be true.

Many injustices exist in the Art World. If you don’t have a name that is recognized, it is very difficult to get more than a small amount for your work . . . if, that is, you can manage to sell it at all. Sign the same painting with a famous name and it might sell for more than the GNP of a small nation.

We will look at some of the things that can determine the amount for which a work of art might sell; at some things that are being passed off as “art”; at some of the hoaxes that have been put over on the public; and at some of the best art forgers.

History Talk: A journey through the fascinating history of the “Royal Town” of Xàbia/Jávea

Lecturer: Angela Chantry

Subject: A journey through the fascinating history of the“Royal Town” of Xàbia / Jávea.

 

The presentation takes a journey through the fascinating history of Jávea, revealing that the town had a place in events belonging to the great history of Spain: from the rock paintings in the caves of the Montgó; the Roman salt works; the Muslim farmers who lived and worked in settlements on the terraced farm land; El Cid’s landing by sea; Phillip III who granted Jávea the status of “Royal Town”; the attacks by pirates; the booming raisin industry – Jávea has a very interesting past and it was not until 1981 that the town really began to take part in Spain’s booming tourist industry.

Lecturer: Peter Atkinson

Title: Intersecting Lives: John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Lyndon Baines Johnson

While attempting throughout to separate reality from myth, I shall look at the lives, personalities and careers of the two men and at the difficult relationship between them.  They had very different backgrounds, the privileged New Englander and the humbler Texas farm boy, and each had significant strengths and deep flaws.  The presentation will range across more than half a century but there will be some emphasis on the 60s, the decade of their presidencies, when the principal issues were the cold war, civil rights, Vietnam, and the assassination and its aftermath.  It is a story of two fascinating individuals living through interesting and challenging times.

The monthly talks are not always entirely restricted to Egypt, since David will be throwing in the occasional lecture on the history and archaeology of the Old Testament, the ‘Heroic Age’ of Bronze Age Greece, the Minoan bull-leaping culture of Crete, the warlike Hittites of Anatolia (modern Turkey), and the ancient civilisations of Mesopotamia (modern Iraq and Syria), as well as some ‘specials’ on completely different but nevertheless fascinating topics such as the legendary epic tale of the Trojan War and the Romano-Spanish traditions surrounding the Sangreal (‘Holy Grail’).
