Continuing its mission to raise awareness on essential issues of our times through contemporary art, the new art project of ART for The World, is AQUA, an international travelling exhibition focusing on water and its importance to human beings, fauna and flora, curated by Adelina von Fürstenberg. AQUA aims to emphasize our collective responsibility on the role and use of water in our world today, where water management is a major challenge and a priority objective of the 21st century.
Most being presented for the first time, the artworks by 30 contemporary artists from differing horizons, touch on the preservation of water. The exhibition is conceived to raise public awareness of the notion of interdependence, essential to the conservation of our environment and to the future of our planet. When water is under menace, so too are all forms of life on Earth. Recognised as a vital life-giving element, water is essential to preserving biodiversity and ecosystems. As a human resource, it is at the centre of climate change and its consequences, a possible origin, or a subject of conflict.
