In 2015 the United Nations will celebrate its 70th anniversary. To mark this momentous and auspicious occasion, the Gabarron Foundation offers a public presentation of some of the organization's rarely-seen and wide-encompassing collection of films and videos, campaign posters and photographs in galleries in New York and elsewhere. This exhibition, co-organized by the foundation and the United Nations through its Department of Public Information, will celebrate the UN through its vast iconographic archives, and will travel the world until 2015 in exhibition at different museums and art centers.

UNEARTH is the most revealing and broadest exhibition ever assembled about the UN's own perspective in key moments of recent history, encompassing the organization's seven decades life span. It will show, reflect and comment on the UN's journey as the world and humankind changed dramatically during the past 68 years and it will emphasize some the most important aspects of its main activities (Human Rights, Development, Humanitarian Assistance, and Peace and Security).

The exhibition will not only showcase the achievements of UN but will also highlight the challenges facing the international organization in the next decades. A vast array of UN officials, Goodwill and Peace Ambassadors, intellectuals, artists, journalists and historians will dig into the UN history in order to present the general visitor with views into the past, present and future of this unique and vital institution.

UNEARTH will consist of campaign posters, an exclusive photography exhibition and a wide range film and video selections. The exhibition showcases the work of iconic artists -- like Victor Vasarely, Robert Rauschenberg, Joan Miró, Jean-Micheal Folon, Hans Erni, Marc Chagall, Keith Haring, Oswaldo Guayasamin, Jan Arnesen and Cristobal Gabarron -- all of whose art helped to promote UN endeavors. After December the exhibition will continue its global journey, returning to New York in 2015.

Join us in this spectacular journey and unearth the United Nations.
