It aims to get the Spanish and the Arab community closer, and everyone in general. They make us reflect on how much do we look alike. The opening was a success and it brought a beautiful gathering of people.
The exhibition focuses on concepts fundamental to life in both countries. Mubarak. Four artists are featured: Pilar Albarracin, Mohammed Al Kaabi, Berta Vicente Salas and Alanood Mubarak . They have shared their vision of the concept and values proposed and curated together to tell us their stories from different perspectives, united through the languages of photography and video art.
The curated collection of photographs, displayed in a parallel way, invite us to think about If we picture love in the same way. Contemporary is giving visual answers to questions like, Do we the same dreams? Do we have the same vision from our ancestors or progress? How can we overcome our differences? And overall aims to invite to share our vision of values and find a way to get closer and not just simply live parallelly.
