    EALDC Members have access to an exclusive tour of the XYTZ: Abstract Landscapes exhibit at ARTECHOUSE on June 28. 

    Step into imaginary territory of lines, dots, and letters, and immerse yourself into this virtual playground of four dimensions: X(horizontal), Y (vertical), Z (depth), and T (time).

    XYZT: Abstract Landscapes is a world-travelled installation by internationally acclaimed French contemporary digital artists and multimedia choreographers Adrien M & Claire B. The interactive show offers an exploratory physical experience through ten digital landscapes.

    After the tour, join your fellow EALDC members for networking and drinks at the ARTECHOUSE bar area.
