The Galeria Continua in Beijing – also present in San Gimignano, Italy, and Moulin, France – presents its exhibition “Beijing Online inLive – 10 Fingers 100 Hands” dedicated to five international talents who worked together, beyond their differences in the name of “creativity”. We find the Jamaican Nari Ward and Cuban Carlos Garaicoa in what the Galeria Continua presented as an exhibition dedicated to tolerance and to promote sociability feeded by differences coexisting in peace and without any conflict.

A chance to rediscover the boundless creativity of Nari Ward and Carlos Garaicoa in this expression for freedom and tolerance, we alos find the work work of French Kader Attia, Subodh Gupta of India and the Cameroonian Jean Appolinaire Tayou.

Carlos Garaicoa exposes photographs of the years 1950 to 1970 found during three years of traveling in China and examines the relationship between tradition and modernity in the contemporary Chinese society.

The work of the Jamaican sculptor Nari Ward focuses on the reuse of urban materials from whom he diverts the first use to reflect on the basis of our societey.
