Another learning experience working with the amazing Latin & Korean women behind this event. Their level of energy, positivism, love for the arts and down to earth attitude have made it a fun time. Despite the kids being on holiday with the support of my family it worked so well. Instead of feeling tired, I feel energized!
To celebrate the 2015 IDB-IIC Annual Meeting of the Boards of Governors from March 26-29, 2015, in Busan, and welcome roughly 3,000 participants including member nations’ finance ministers, central bank presidents, corporate representatives, financiers and journalists from Latin America & the Caribbean area, a cultural exchange week was held from Mar. 21-30 at the Busan Cinema Center showcasing various Latin cultural programs including this art exhibit featuring a selection of old masters as well as emerging artists among them: Oswaldo Guayasamin, Eduardo Kingman, Luis Molinari and Gaby Berglund Cardenas (Ecuador), Jonidel Mendoza, Alfredo Herrera, Ismael Mundaray, Gaudi Este (Venezuela), Claudio Roncoli, Nora Iniesta, Margarita Tonconoay (Argentina), Antonio Maro (Peru), Roberto Matta, Soledad Lame (Chile), The Merger, CHOCO, Flora Fong (Cuba), Jose Maria Yturralde (Spain).
I feel honored to show my work next to some of the old Masters and I am infinitely grateful to Bellarte for this opportunity.
