The Onassis Cultural Centre hosts the exhibition "Video Portraits" by Robert Wilson from April 5th to July 7th 2013.

Robert Wilson is a choreographer, director, artist, sculptor, performer and video artist. His VOOM series consists of 43 videos which he conceived, designed and directed between 2004 and 2009. The video-portraits interweave photography, film, literature and sound to comment on the history of portraiture as a genre. Although his heroes appear static, they evolve gradually, indeed almost imperceptible, in a way which arrests the viewer's attention.

The videos star famous actors, artists and authors including Mikhail Baryshnikov, Juliette Binoche, Willem Dafoe, Johnny Depp, Marianne Faithfull, Renée Fleming, Salma Hayek, Isabelle Hubbert, Jeanne Moreau, Sean Penn, Brad Pitt, Isabella Rossellini and Winona Ryder.

The photo is a generous offer by RW Work Ltd. and Dissident Industries Inc.
