Opening: Monday, March 8. International Women's Day.
Next Monday, March 8, coinciding with International Women's Day, the MEAM will once again claim the importance of women in the world of contemporary art and culture, through the exhibition 'Women Painting (All over the world) ”, Open until May 2, 2021.
The sample includes 87 works, between painting and drawing, by more than 78 women artists of various origins from 25 different nationalities, such as the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Spain, Norway, Italy, Ireland, Germany, France, Holland, Russia, Egypt, Mexico, Panama, Venezuela or Chile, among others.
This is the third almost consecutive year (the exhibition was not held in 2020) that the Museum has organized an exhibition with the aim of highlighting the role of women in figurative art, historically dominated by male artists, and encouraging future artists to develop his artistic career. The MEAM thus strengthens its commitment and demand for figurative art in women. Some of the artists exhibiting this year are Froydis Aarseth, Omalix Arlette, Mary Jane Ansell, Tanya Atanasova, Teresa Brutcher, Kamille Corry, Erica Elan Ciganek, or the Barcelona-born Miriam Escofet, who in 2019 was commissioned to paint a portrait of the Queen Isabel II who was unveiled last year.
Beyond the exhibition, the museum will organize parallel activities until the end of the exhibition to claim the role of giving in the world of art and culture. Forums, webinars, conferences and workshops will be held, always taking into account the limitations and restrictions set by the COVID-19 pandemic.
