“Cara a cara” is Spanish for “face to face” and is the title of an art project initiated by artist Bernice Wilson. It involves 14 (mostly) London-based Artists and hopes to raise money and awareness for street children in, Bolivia. It is a reciprocal portrait project and involves 31 children from Bolivia creating portraits of the artists and in turn the artists have created a portrait of the corresponding child.
