Isabel Coixet's Faces exhibition, inaugurated on the 26th of May, displays an array of 52 portraits of actors, actresses and writers that the Catalan cinema director took behind the scenes.

Proceeds of the sales are set to be funneled into Proactiva Open Arms, a grassroots NGO founded by a group of lifeguards in September 2015 in Badalona (NE Spain). Evers since the association has been committed to save the lives of the refugees who navigate their way on to the coast of Lesbos (Greece).

Juliette Binoche, Tim Robbins, Penélope Cruz and John Berger's faces are displayed. All photographs are Glicée print made, a technique that uses jets of paint over texturized paper. The exhibition is to remain open until June 11th.
