On Friday 27 January 2017 at 7 p.m. in Oris House of Architecture, the exhibition Iannis Xenakis & UPIC opened. The opening was a part of the 2017 edition of Night of Museums, which is dedacated to music, music history and great musicians and composers. During the opening, the members of the Cantus Ensemble performed several Xenakis' music pieces.

In 2012, an interactive traveling exhibition, published by the Centre Iannis Xenakis, saw the day. It presents the tool to aid musical composition through drawing (called UPIC), created by the composer and architect Iannis Xenakis beginning in the 1950s. It traces the history of the UPIC, based on documents from the archives of the Centre Iannis Xenakis: correspondence, concert posters, photographs, video testimonials highlighting experiences by composers, or the various UPIC workshops conducted with children or the blind. In addition to the history of the tool and the biography of its maker, a focus is given to the first work composed by Iannis Xenakis on the UPIC: to discover Mycenae Alpha, the visitor may consult a video listening station (testimony by Iannis Xenakis himself and a video of the graphic score of the work).
