BNP Paribas has brought to Moscow two major exhibitions of Yann-Arthus-Bertrand. On July 28th at Moscow Multimedia Art Museum two exhibitions of GoodPlanet Foundation were opened with the support of BNP Paribas Russia team – humanity video exposition “6 billion Others” and “The forests and people” project.
The relationship between a human being and the nature is the main idea of both exhibitions. To live in harmony with the world around us, people must learn to understand and respect other people. GoodPlanet foundation, created and led by Yann Arthus-Bertrand – a renowned French photographer, tends to attract attention and interest of the environment and society in general. Thus it is natural that the Foundation exposes these two different exhibitions in content, but complementing each other.
Both exhibitions were of a great interest to the Moscow public. Despite the heat of +30 degrees approximately 1000 guests, media and art lovers gathered in the new building of the Multimedia Art Museum at Ostozhenka 16. At the opening – made by the author himself – Yann Arthus-Bertrand, as well as museum director Olga Sviblova and Laurent Couraudon, head of BNP Paribas in Russia gave welcoming speeches and spoke of the importance of supporting the nature and thinking of humanity.
