24/7 VALENCIA: COULD YOU PLEASE TELL US MORE ABOUT THIS ENVIRONMENT-FRIENDLY EXHIBITION?…
APIV: “This exhibition should have opened last year (2020), but the pandemic arrived and the exhibition was postponed. An unforeseen circumstance, a great disaster that should make us reflect on the fragility of our world and, above all, on how we, the people who inhabit it and our way of life, affect it.
An exhibition whose common thread is the environmental and ecological claim, and the awareness of the importance of sustainability as one of the great challenges of the 21st century, and for which we cannot imagine a more appropriate place than the Botanical Garden of the University of Valencia, as a space for conservation, dissemination and appreciation of our natural environment.
In an open way and subject to different points of view – even the most critical – these illustrations reflect on pressing issues for the survival of human beings and the animal and plant world, such as the Sustainable Development Goals, climate change and media and awareness campaigns such as “Youth for the climate / Fridays for future”.
A compilation of the works of 60 illustrators who are members of the Associació de Professionals de la Il-lustració Valenciana – APIV, who invite us, through their work tools, to become aware of the need for a real environmental revolt.”
PLEASE EXPLAIN MORE ABOUT APIV…
APIV: “We are a non-profit association that defends the rights and interests of Valencian graphic illustration professionals in particular and the profession as a whole. Re-founded in 1997 (after its foundation in 1989), it works for the defence, visibility and dignity of the sector thanks to the support of its nearly 200 members.”
