The 7th Athens Biennale ECLIPSE has opened the portals of its multiverse, calling you to listen, look, and feel the kaleidoscope of possibilities of a world in transition.

Curated by Omsk Social Club and Larry Ossei-Mensah, under the artistic direction of Poka-Yio, AB7: ECLIPSE re-inhabits for two months the former Department Store Fokas, the former Santaroza Courthouse in Justice Square and Schliemann-Mela Hall, aspiring to create a moment of connection and cross-cultural conversation that will lead to a transformative experience.
