The CurArt exhibition is a collection of images taken by Tino Soriano, renowned photographer linked to the Lluís Coromina Foundation. The exhibition, which highlights the art of healing, and gives visibility to the effort and perseverance of professionals in the healthcare world, is also a portrait of the experiences and situations in various areas of medicine, such as home visits , the work of rural doctors, emergency services, and many other facets that are often invisible.

"Healing is an art and so is taking care of health", explains Soriano, who with this exhibition wanted to pay tribute and thank the entire group of healthcare professionals in the country.
