The World Bank aims to build better societies through lending funds for civic infrastructure, basic services, housing, and food programs. This is a critical yet utopian agenda that tries to take into account the needs of its constituents. The goal of this exhibition is to see how artists of this greater metropolitan area interpret the idea of an idyll or a utopian environment.
