The Visual Dialogues 2013 leave the confines of the OCC to transform the Plato’s Academy Leisure Park into an ideal space for exhibiting works inspired by the great Greek poet, C.P. Cavafy.

This year, the Visual Dialogues, which the OCC is staging for the third time, mark the 150th anniversary of the birth and 80th anniversary of the death of the great poet, C.P. Cavafy (1863-1933). A stroll through the Plato’s Academy Leisure Park becomes a journey around works by contemporary Greek and international artists which deal with the presence of ancient Greek thought in Cavafy’s poetry. New and original art-works using modern technologies (video screenings, digital images, photographs and animation etc.) are shown in architectural constructions which become a compass for a journey with a difference.
