Catalan Artists: A Feminist Perspective

Debate

Free with pre-booking

Elina Norandi, art historian, Meri Torras, professor of comparative literature, and Martina Millà, head of exhibitions at the Joan Miró Foundation, talk about the relevance of women artists in contemporary art in Catalonia in a talk moderated by journalist Maria Gorgues.

Coinciding with the presentation of the book Cent dues artistes (Univers Art, 2022), which studies the work of female visual artists in Catalonia from the 19th century to the present, this session proposes a reformulation of the traditional canon of art history. The aim of the proposal is not to isolate female artists as an exoticism, but to show that historical circumstances and the patriarchal structure have meant that women did not create in the same circumstances as men and that, consequently, they require their own categories of analysis. The event will be attended by the authors who have collaborated in the book and some of the artists studied.
