From March 2019, on the occasion of the celebration of the 'International Women's Day', the MEAM will present the exhibition Painting Today. An exhibition of international artists referents in contemporary figurative painting. The MEAM has commissioned curator Didi Menendez, from the community of artists PoetsArtists, to present more than 70 works that women painters have made and are doing in the field of contemporary figurative art at an international level.
Last year, the MEAM presented Women Artists Today, an interesting exhibition that brought together the most outstanding works of 26 Spanish painters and 12 sculptors of the current scene and who claimed the importance of women in contemporary Spanish art.

The recital will begin at 4:30 p.m. and will be in charge of the soprano Romina Krieger, the pianist Olga Kobekina and the actress Maria Voronkova.
