October 28, 2022
Les Rencontres de la Photographie d'Arles presented in summer the exhibition Une avant-garde féministe des années 1970 curated by Gabriele Schor, with more than two hundred works by seventy-one women artists from the Verbund Collection in Vienna, collected over eighteen years during the 1970s, with the presence of the work of Marisa González, artist of Galería Freijo.
Through five themes, the exhibition showcased the works of the first artists who proposed a new "image of women", denouncing sexism, social inequalities and patriarchal power structures.
From July 4 to September 25, 2022 at the Atelier de la Mécanique of the impressive LUMA Foundation in Arles, the exhibition was the fourteenth FEMINIST AVANT-GARDE venue and welcomed 127,000 people.
