Elena Asins in the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao | Women in Abstraction
October 19, 2021
On October 22nd, the opening of the exhibition Women in Abstraction will take place. It is an exhibition organized by the Centre Pompidou, París, in collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. It was conceived by Christine Marcel, Chief Curator at the Centre Pompidou, and Karolina Lewandowska, Director of the Museum of Warsaw, and organized with Lekha Hileman Waitoller, curator at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
Women in Abstraction aims to trace a lesser-told history of art primarily from the 20th and 21st centuries by focusing on the contribution of women artists to abstraction. The exhibition includes over 100 artists working across disciplines, such as dance, applied arts, photography, film, and performance art from Latin America, the Middle East and Asia, Europe, and the United States in order to tell an expansive and complex story with many voices.
In it, the work of Elena Asins, pioneer in cybernetic art, is included.
