Krikor Momdjian is an Armenian-Lebanese multimedia artist and poet, who has been based in the Netherlands since 1979. He will exhibit a variety of early and recent paintings, etchings and an installation

There will be a drinks reception from 5pm followed by a talk from Pembroke’s fellow in Armenian studies, Prof. Theo Maarten van Lint, and the JCR Art Fund curator, Sarah Hegenbart, at 5:30pm in the Pichette Auditorium.

This event also marks the launch of two books: one of the artist’s works, the other of his poetry translated into English. A choice of these poems has been set to music and will be performed during the event by Berlin-based composer, Christoph D. Ostendorf, and Bass-Baritone, Florian Hille.

The event will finish with a special viewing of Krikor’s work in the Pembroke Art Gallery.
