Tekeyan Cultural Association Boston Chapter Presents a Zoom Talk on Preserving an Armenian Culture of Stone Masonry with Nare Filiposyan
March 24, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Tekeyan Cultural Association Greater Boston Chapter is hosting a Zoom talk and Q&A with architectural designer and researcher Nare Filiposyan. In her thesis, titled “(Re)Turn to Stone: Preserving a Culture of Stone Masonry,” Filiposyan explores the ancient stone masonry techniques practiced by masons in Armenia, and the cultural heritage imbued within their work. Her research spans between interviews in Armenia; visits to medieval churches, quarries, and stone cutting facilities; remote conversations with stone masons; and her own experiments as a way to understand the techniques at play, and ultimately to project a method for preserving the dying culture of Armenian stone masonry. A Q&A session after the talk will be moderated by Ted Touloukian. The event will be held on Thursday, March 24, 2022 from 8-9 PM EST. All are invited.
