Cartagena (Colombia), Mar 11 (EFE) .- The downward trend of the coronavirus pandemic in Cartagena de Indias allowed the reopening of cultural spaces such as the Spanish Cooperation Training Center (CFCE) that opened its doors to the public with the EnRedArte exhibition.
The sample summoned 19 artists who presented their proposals in drawing, painting, sculpture and photography.
EnRedArte aims to honor through art the resilience, positivity and solidarity that have fought the fear and concern caused by this situation of uncertainty that began a year ago.
The exhibition, which integrates drawings, paintings, sculptures and photographs, was preceded by a talk on the result of the call as well as on art and the situation of artists in the city in times of pandemic and not pandemic.
The CFCE also opened the doors of its Library-Documentation Center of the Spanish Cooperation, while the rest of activities such as those carried out through Intercoonecta in the Training Centers of the Spanish Cooperation in Latin America, continue virtually.
The Cartagena painter Raúl Ballesteros participates in the exhibition with a drawing on paper entitled “Magic Drop”, which represents the resistance of a figure in time.
The artist explained to Efe that the theme of the exhibition is “resilience in times of pandemic.”
Ballesteros is recognized for “Parapet City”, a series of works in which he intends to show the socioeconomic differences that exist in the city.
It also addresses the problem of noise, gas and garbage pollution, as well as the scarce fauna and flora that surrounds Cartagena, the jewel of Colombian tourism.
If the trend of the pandemic remains down, the exhibition will be open to the public until May.
According to the Ministry of Health, Colombia accumulates 2,290,539 cases of coronavirus and 60,858 deaths due to the pandemic to date. EFE
