Marisa Gonzalez | Group show FEMINISMS! 19 July - 1 December 2019
July 16, 2019
The Center for Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB) presents the group show ¡FEMINISMS! from July 19 to December 1, 2019, where the artist Marisa Gonzalez will participate as part of the "The Feminist Avant-Garde of the 1970s and of the works from VERBUND COLLECTION, Vienna"
The exhibition highlights the milestones of the avant-garde feminism which, in the seventies, rewrote the canon of the history of art. It presents over 200 works by 73 women artists such as Cindy Sherman, Helena Almeida, Ana Mendieta, Judy Chicago, VALIE EXPORT, Birgit Jürgenssen, Ketty La Rocca, ORLAN, Gina Pane, Martha Rosler and Martha Wilson.
The CCCB has incorporated eight local artists: Pilar Aymerich, Eugènia Balcells, Mari Chordà, Marisa González, Eulàlia Grau, Fina Miralles, Àngels Ribé and Dorothée Selz.
By means of languages and techniques such as photography, cinema, video, performance and happenings, these artists deconstructed the repressive cultural and social constraints of the time, as well as the mechanisms and automatisms of oppression of women. For the first time in the history of art, women artists began, as a group, to take the initiative in the “representation of women” by creating a plurality of feminine identities that they determined.
