Exhibition of the 11th Mulier Mulieris Visual Arts Contest

Alicante 6 March 2017

Translated by María Navarro Martínez

  • Exhibition of the 11th Mulier Mulieris Visual Arts Contest
  • From 10 March to 16 July at the University of Alicante Museum, MUA.
  • Exhibition opening: Friday 10 March at 7.30 p.m.

 

The celebration of International Women's Day on 8 March is the perfect occasion to look back on everything we have achieved in terms of gender equality, but also to reflect on all the work still left to do. Since 2007, the University of Alicante Museum has been helping place the spotlight on the victories, and also on the battles yet to be fought, through Mulier, Mulieris, a visual arts contest aimed at fostering artistic creation from a gender perspective. This exhibition is organised in collaboration with the Office of the Vice President for Corporate Social Responsibility, Inclusion and Gender Equality, and it is one of the many initiatives undertaken by the University of Alicante in order to raise awareness on gender equality among the university community and citizenship in general.

One hundred artists applied to this year's edition of Mulier Mulieris; thirteen of them were selected by a jury whose members were art experts. The works selected this year are varied, both in terms of their country of origin (Spain, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Poland, and Sweden), and the richness of languages and materials used. All thirteen artists are aware of how powerful a tool art is, and of its capacity to bring change into society. These proposals analyse concepts such as memory, identity, visibility, gender equality, control, denounce, and resistance. They are an open invitation for viewers to reflect on the establishment, question it, and take action.

Artists: Consuegra Romero Catarina Diedrich & Antonio Mas. María del Carmen Díez Muñoz Palmira García Quintana Amalia Julieta Gómez Erica Landfors Vero McClain Miriam Navarro Fuentes Alicia Palacios Ferri Priscilla Pessoa Raquel Planas Katarzyna Rogowicz Virginia Rota
