Arte + Fe at World Youth Day 2011, Madrid, Spain
World Youth Day (WYD, Madrid, 2011)
World Youth Day is a great worldwide get together with Christians, that is celebrated every three years in a different country. This time it was celebrated in Madrid from August 16th to 21st, 2011.
The Euro Latin Photographers Foundation attended this 5 day event and met with many inspiring people. Together with thousands of other young people who share a common believe, interests and ambitions, and that are our future generation. A photo impression of the World Youth Day 2011 is in our Flickr photo album here.
The exhibit Arte + Fe will be held at the Pons Foundation on the occasion of World Youth Day (WYD) and will offer a look at the Christian contemporary works of artists from around the world whose common goal is to have art serve as a bridge to faith. The exhibit will be open from August 9 to 26 in 2011 at the headquarters of the Pons Foundation.
The radical and the profound, need not be at odds with one another, nor must contemporary art and the faith clash. This is demonstrated by the 36 works (including installation art, performances, paintings, photographs) of the exhibit Arte + Fe (Art and Faith) featuring countries from all the different continents (USA, Japan, Netherlands, Liberia, and the Philippines).
