Panos Kokkinias

Artist and photographer Panos Kokkinias participated in the exhibition "2050. A Brief History of the Future" held in Brussels from 11 September 2015 to 24 January 2016.

Belgium's Royal Museums of Fine Arts and the Louvre Museum partnered up to present an ambitious, innovative idea inspired by the text of Jacques Attali: A Brief History of the Future. Two separate, yet complementary exhibitions, both broached the same question. Asking questions about the future, with the Louvre doing so by observing the past and Brussels taking a more exploratory approach, they analysed the potential that runs through and vitalises societies from their initial emergence, right up the future date of 2050.

The exhibition at the Louvre sought to take a look into the future, based on a subjective reading of the past, illustrated and shaped through the works of artists from past millennia. At the same time, Belgium's Royal Museums of the Fine Arts focused on current art output, exploring a series of social issues ranging from globalisation to the commodification of time, and over-consumption to planetary prosperity.

Those issues were explored through the works of internationally renowned modern artists like Sugimoto, Boetti, Kingelez, Warhol, LaChapelle, Gursky, Op de Beeck, Yongliang, Turk, Alÿs, and others, who inspired visitors to the exhibtion to think critically about the future they themselves were shaping. There are plans to bring the exhibition to Milan in the near future.

Panos Kokkinias presented his work Yiorgis (2011, 120 x 180 cm) from his series "Leave your myth in Greece".
