WATER FOR LIFE, INTERNATIONAL ART EXHIBITION 2018: Message from Prof. Matty Roca, Art Critic and Art Historian (Mexico)

In the recent years, water that was considered the basic and pure component that inspired sacred celebrations is causing natural disasters such as tsunamis, threatening the survival of human beings and Nature.

The art of today is mainly based on research and experimentation, this is why Antoine Gaber’s ability to combine his passions, his clinical research career and his art for healing our spirit and creating harmony among people and nature.

The “Water for Life” Exhibition is a follow up from several past events for which we collaborated since 2004 while always including a social message for the benefit of humanity. In 2011, Antoine Gaber promoted for the first time in Mexico water protection through the event, “Water in Art” for which selected international artists exhibited their artwork in several public spaces in Mexico City, including in the Subway.

For the occasion of “Water for Life”, Rina Lazo, assistant and collaborator of the famous muralist Diego Rivera, showed a great interest in Gaber’s event as she herself with Diego Rivera were among the first promoters of clean water in Mexico City, through their stunning painting murals in the Cárcamo del Rio Lerma.

The International renown Art Critic, Berta Taracena, through her discovery of Antoine Gaber’s altruistic work, and his scientific and artistic talent wrote an exclusive art critique and invited him to join the National and International Elite Artists group of the “Mirada Colosal”.

Professor Taracena made the official announcement that Gaber became a full Member of “La Mirada Colosal” during his International solo exhibition “Passion for Life” and, fundraising Program for the fight against breast cancer at the Senate of the Republic of Mexico.

The “Water for Life” Art Exhibition, which takes place at the Niagara Falls History Museum, supports the importance of the water as essential element that feeds every living form on the planet.
