Eve Kalyva eve_kalyva Eve Kalyva is an art critic and a writer. She has a PhD in Art History (2011), has worked as lecturer in Europe and Latin America, and has collaborated with art institutions as curator, critic and artist in residence. Eve is interested in the relation between art and society in both its historical and contemporary expressions. Moreover, because of her academic training in fine art, Eve engages closely with the art-object in terms of how it was made, what it depicts or represents, and how it was used as a cultural artefact. As a docent, Eve offers insights to artistic production in a comprehensive and interactive way. She encourages others to engage critically with what they see, relate it to the world around them and consider: how does looking at art make us feel? What ideas does it enable us to think? Apart from everything related to art, Eve loves travelling and is fascinated by world cultures, languages and world-views.
