The Visual Dialogues is the first production of the Onassis Cultural Centre in the field of the visual arts. It constitutes a parallel activity to the international Athens Dialogues conference, which was the occasion for its creation.

Fourteen visual artists using contemporary forms of expression (video projections of electronic images or photographs, sound installations, animation, interactive works, etc.) have attempted to translate into images the problematic stimulated by the scholarly discussions conducted under the six thematic headings of the conference and respond, each in their own way, to the issues that arise from the investigation and reappraisal of the cultural legacy of ancient Greece in contemporary society.
