The exhibition EN DIÁLOGO CON LA MAR gathered original photographs by Jacques-Yves Cousteau and put them into dialogue with 16 international contemporary artists who reflected on Captain Cousteau’s idea of the conservation of the ocean through video, photography, drawing, performance, painting and contemporary jazz music. Knowledge reveals and inspires, it helps us to appreciate what exists and to establish a dialogue with existence. Cousteau showed us the submarina life, discovered magic worlds in times when the science of discovering the underwater world was extremely difficult.
He helped the human being to enter mentally into unknown oceanic environments in order to reveal the beauty and fragility of the underwater world. In Mexico the exhibition attracted more than 15.000 visitors in only 4 weeks, a lot of them young people from local schools who were guided through the exhibition accompanied by short workshops regarding the conservation of nature.
