New Socratic Dialogues

Just as some 2400 years ago, in reference to current cultural issues and today’s social climate, we confront the same questions addressed in Plato’s Socratic dialogues. While serious discussions took place then, philosophical dialogues were often seen as a type of word game or source of entertainment. Yet concrete philosophies evolved from those discussions. It is with these ideas in mind that artist Kristin Llamas and The Parthenon in Nashville join together for a new body of work. We are asking the BIG questions and asking for responses from you (discussion encouraged). For each question, artist Kristin Llamas will interpret through large-scale painting to be exhibited at the Parthenon October 19, 2013-February 18, 2014.
