The personal is political, art made by Latin American women

Varios artistas | Various artists

from February 27, 2021 to April 17, 2021

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of Linda Nochlin's essay, based on the question Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?, which is also its title. Through this work, she slit Art History open, exposing a new field of research that aims to generate collective awareness about the role of women in art, from the place they occupy within art institutions, productions made by women, their work techniques and themes, to their representation as models.

It is evident that there has been a change in recent years and a revision of Art History is taking place, in many cases carried out by the artists themselves and even the artistic practice itself has joined the movement that this essay would detonate; how can we not see it this way, as political art and clear heir of the idea that The personal is political.

This movement has crossed the world and Latin American art has not remained oblivious to it, on the contrary, its implication is remarkable, as can be seen in the different works of the artists Helen Escobedo, Ana Sacerdote, Marisol Escobar, Magdalena Jitrik, Elvira Gascón, Marianne Gast, Yani Pecanins, Teresa SerranoGina Arizpe, María María Acha-Kutscher, Lucía Madriz, Ángela Bonadies and Glenda Zapata, which are included in this exhibition.
