In the evening I attended the private view of Infancia, a photo exhibition by Isabel Muñoz, organized by Unicef. The photographer has won two World Press Photo prizes. These photos depict children from four continents and highlight how their situations relate to the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
As with most events of this type, those that address real issues, I always feel a bit uncomfortable when we, the visitors, then find ourselves drinking champagne and eating finger food...
The exhibition is on show at Espace BGL BNP Paribas (Royal / Monterey) in Luxembourg City.
After the photo event, I briefly went to an art exhibition Ukraine - Reality and Future. Paintings by various Ukrainian artists were shown at The Karp Law Firm in rue Philippe II. It is a charity project to help children from the anti-terrorist operation (ATO) zone in East Ukraine.
