Evagoras Vanezis’ practice engages with the production and contextualization of cross-disciplinary spaces and narratives, working between the fields of curation, art theory and creative writing. Through the mediums of project, exhibition, and text, his hybrid methodology incorporates events, ecologies, fragments, and footnotes from sources as varied as the history of aesthetics, literature, feminist and queer theory, decoloniality, personal and collective experiences.

Since 2016 he has organized various exhibitions, programs, and publishing projects in collaboration with communities, institutions, and other initiatives. Recent projects include Anachoresis: Upon Inhabiting Distances, the Cyprus Pavilion at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition, Venice Biennale (co-curator, 2021); Formworks, Thkio Ppalies Project Space (curator, 2019–2022); Poetics of Dance Encounters, Dance House Lefkosia (researcher, 2022–2023); fellow of Micro & Macro Dramaturgies in Dance, Anghiari Dance Hub and Marche Teatro (Italy), Bora Bora (Denmark), Dance House Lemesos (Cyprus), DansBrabant (the Netherlands) and Tanec Praha (Czechia), 2020–2022.

He is currently a participant of A Natural Oasis?, Biennale of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean (BJCEM, 2022–2023). He holds an MRes in Art Theory and Philosophy from Central Saint Martins.
