Loukia Alavanou – Towards New Horizons, A Solo Exhibition at State of Concept, curated by Iliana Fokianaki

02 March – 28 April 2018, Athens, Greece

A landmark exhibition on the work of one of the most interesting artists of the contemporary art greek scene, Loukia Alavanou, curated by iLiana Fokianaki. For this exhibition, the artist will  present together with her older works the first act of her new virtual reality project entitled “New Horizons – Pilot”, commissioned and produced by Onassis Culture.  This pilot project acts as a precursor to a new unity of works consisting of two visual arts films with 3D stereoscopic virtual reality shots (VR180) and has as a departure point both the conceptual and technological strategies of the futuristic film “To New Horizons” produced for the Futurama exhibition in 1940 as part of the international exhibition EXPO – 1939 in New York.
