We are pleased to present four videos from the Llhuros Symposium 2022, an international event hosted by the University of Tennessee School of Art in conjunction with the Llhuros Project. Held over Zoom on October 8, 2022, the symposium marked the 50th anniversary of Norman Daly’s “Civilization of Llhuros.” Artists and scholars discussed Daly’s pioneering multimedia work of archaeological fiction which was first shown at Cornell University in 1972, as well as his influence as a teacher. An abundance of information on “Llhuros,” as well as the legacy of Norman Daly, is available through The Civilization of Llhuros and Norman Daly websites. For more information about the symposium, contact Professor Beauvais Lyons (firstname.lastname@example.org).
