HUARTE.- On the occasion of the Bicentennial of the War of Independence, the State Corporation for Cultural Commemorations (SECC), coordinated by the Ministry of Culture, and the Government of Navarra, has organized the exhibition "Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity" for which it has invited 15 Spanish, 14 French and 2 Portuguese artists to present works that address the state of development of these three ideals of coexistence of modern society born of the heat of the French Revolution of 1789.

The Frenchman Bernard Marcadé and the Spaniard Isabel Durán are the curators of this show at the Huarte Contemporary Art Center comprising pieces by the following artists: Antoni Abad, Jean-Michel Alberola, Elisabeth Ballet, Christian Boltanski, José Manuel Broto, Jean-Marc Bustamante, Daniel Canogar, Rui Chafes, Chema Cobo, Ninar Esber, Joan Fontcuberta, Luis Gordillo, Cristina Iglesias, Cristina Lucas, Annette Messager, François Morellet, Jean-Luc Moulène, Antoni Muntadas, Francis Naranjo, Marina Núñez, Bruno Peinado, Gonçalo Pena, Jaume Plensa, Bernardí Roig, Fernando Sánchez Castillo, Alain Séchas, Bruno Serralongue, Niele Toroni, Tatiana Trouvé, Eulàlia Valldosera and Yan Pei-Ming.

Liberty Equality Fraternity (LEF) addresses the current state of these three ideals of coexistence through one of the most intense realms of human enrichment: art.

France and Spain, Spain and France, the former adversaries are now brothers. The participation in the show of two Portuguese artists is a gesture, a necessary historical amends since Portugal was also a brother country during those events and remains so at present.

The conclusion is before us: hardly an optimistic outlook. More than two hundred years later, those objectives have not been achieved; there is not complete liberty, we are not all born equal and the fraternal feeling is exceptional. And yet, society has advanced, human rights are now more real and there is still hope for a better world.

On the occasion of the exhibition a children's art and theatre workshop will be put on at Centro Huarte during the Christmas holiday period. Moreover, in January, studio visits will take place on Saturdays and Sundays.
