Opening Painting Today, International Women's Day
On Friday, March 8, coinciding with International Women's Day, the European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM), which promotes and disseminates the figurative art of the 20th and 21st centuries, will once again claim the importance of women in the world of art and contemporary culture, through the opening of the exhibition 'Painting Today, International Women's Day' that will be available until May 5, 2019.
The exhibition includes seventy works by more than forty women artists of diverse origins, coming from the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, South America, and Central America. This is the second year in a row that the Museum organizes an exhibition to highlight the role of women in art, also coinciding with International Women's Day.
Beyond the exhibition, the museum wants to vindicate the role of women in the world of culture and art in general. On March 8, and prior to the inauguration of the exhibition, the MEAM will organize parallel activities led by women, such as concerts, shows, workshops, and conferences. Between the concerts that will accompany the artistic sample, it emphasizes the "Tribute to Elvis Presley" of the group Augie Burr's ETB Trio, or the spectacle "I Got Rythm" with works of Bernstein, Gershwin and Porter.
