TASAAMU/TOLERANCE: The Perpetual Sense of Tolerance and Peace

Organised by Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi

International artist Maria Veronica Leon V. celebrates Tolerance in an exceptional way.

Inspired by the greatest women and men leaders of Peace, the exhibition TASAAMU/TOLERANCE will focus on their mission for Tolerance and Peace around the world. It will also explore the historical approach of Tolerance and its multiple appropriations in different cultures and societies.

Foregrounding the light of one of the greatest writers on Tolerance in history - the universal call for the understanding of this virtue, Voltaire and his prodigious 'Treatise on Toleration', this journey will take everyone to the new generation, through the creation of a corpus of mixed media artworks: paintings, drawings, collage art, videos, installations and writing, reinforcing the understanding between the Western and Eastern World.

Maria Veronica Leon Veintemilla is a multidisciplinary artist from Guayaquil, Ecuador. From 1998 to 2013, she lived and worked in Paris, where she became the first contemporary woman artist from Ecuador to exhibit in a Parisian museum: Petit Palais/Museum of Fine Arts of Paris (2008).
