“Hands Across The Water” will present to visitors to this unique exhibition the result of the immersion of Bencab and Zakii in Mexican cultural life and their dialogue, mutually enriching, with some of the most distinguished actors in the Mexican arts and cultural scene. It was a two way dialogue that also left in Mexico and those who inter-acted with our illustrious visiting artists, a deep and positive impression about the current art trends in their countries and Asia.
Now it is time for you, our kind visitors to the exhibition, to turn your eyes to the works prepared by Bencab and Zakii, inspired in their experience in Mexico. Their works, interacting with the works brought to the exhibition by Sebastián, will speak a language of friendship, common values, history and universal art, which I hope will delight you.
