Curated by Rocio de la Villa and featuring nearly 100 works, including paintings, sculptures, works on paper and textiles with a feminist viewpoint, it presents a survey from the late 16th century to the early decades of the 20th.
Starting from the contemporary notion of sisterhood, it focuses on groups of female artists, patrons and gallerists who shared values as well as favourable socio-cultural and theoretical conditions despite the patriarchal system. Employing a structure principally based on the conjunction of historical periods, artistic genres and themes, the exhibition reveals how these artists approached important issues of their day, established their positions and contributed new iconographies and alternative gazes.
This activity is for people aged 12 and above. Tickets are on sale at the museum’s ticket desks and on its website for a 9 Euro supplement to the entry ticket price.
