“Into the Unknown: A Journey Through Science Fiction” is now on view at the Onassis Cultural Center in Athens. 
"Throughout the exhibition a total of 800 exhibits will be on display, some of which are rare and valuable, such as the Harkonnen Capo chair which was created for the film Dune by Hans Gyger, the original designer of the iconic Alien, and sketches by the artist and special effects pioneer Ray Harryhausen who became widely known for creating the Earth-attacking monster in the 1957 film, '20 Million Miles to Earth'."

The Museum will host a full slate of classic films and other programs associated with the exhibit, which will be up through January 14.

another exhibition i would love to go see, would be great to have something like that around here. The V&A is opening nearby so maybe one day something similar will be around here :)

That's great to know! I've had in mind to go visit this (it's been much talked about here in Athens) but I now definitely want to see those Dinotopia originals up close.
