On February 21st, the 7 Billion Others exhibition will be opening in the United States for the first time at the Museum Of Photographic Arts in San Diego, CA. The exhibition will remain there until September 13th, 2015.

The project features the portraits, voices and stories of people around the world and the ever-changing portrait of humanity. The exhibition will occupy about 5,300 square feet of the temporary exhibition space. Vistors can make their way through numerous intimate screening spaces at their own pace. Programming will change during the exhibition to show more than 22 thematic films, plus the "Making-Of". The exhibition ends with another installation, “Messages”, the participant’s responses to the question, “We are seven billion human beings on Earth, what message would you like to address to the inhabitants of the planet?”

About the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA)

The Museum of Photographic Arts, or MOPA, is a vibrant center for visual learning located in Balboa Park. Since its founding in 1983, the museum’s endeavors consistently address cultural, historical and social issues through its exhibitions and educational programs. The venue for the U.S. premiere, MOPA selected 7 billion Others as its leading exhibition for Balboa Park’s Centennial that commemorates the 1915 Panama-California Exposition.

More Than An Exhibition

MOPA and the GoodPlanet Foundation have come together around a common initiative: to raise awareness of the richness of life and the need to live together in peace. The enthusiasm and professionalism of the museum teams is allied to an unwavering desire to be part of their environment, to involve surrounding communities and to help the least advantaged. Interactive and educational activities resulting from in-depth consideration and a humanist vision of the world further enrich the exhibition experience.
