The exhibition presents, includes multiple original artworks of Latin American great masters. Curated by Cosmo Art Siglo XXV,
which specializes in both exhibition and international management of art museums. The series of programs that will be presented, express concepts of justice, social service, and freedom of expression. This exciting program will include workshops, conferences and panel discussions with the artists plus the exhibition of large collections that normally reside in museums and private collections around the world. Two-hundred years of the Cortes de Cadiz Influencing Latin American Justice, Art and Culture is the starting point of an international project with a vision to integrate Latin American countries that have considered themselves independent nations since 1812.
This historical event opens the doors of Latino America in search of cultural identity and integration, with the intention of creating ties for communication, education, economic and community development between Latin America and Spain as a bridge between Europe and the United States. The purpose of the exhibition and symposium is to promote Latin American countries through artists in order to integrate the socio-political identifies of our cultural heritage. We manifest the diversity of the Latin American cultures by a broad participation of the majority of divisions of society including the private sectors. We believe this to be a key strategy to develop social cohesion and inclusion through education and culture. We present you with the opportunity to support this exciting art series. It’s the support of individuals and institutions that understand and share our vision that facilitate this unique dialogue and helps promote social integration between communities. These societies represent the strength of their cultural heritage and have a diverse and inclusive consciousness.
