Outside the Canon. Women Pop Artists in the Collection
At the end of the 1960s and during the decade that followed, feminism became a lingua franca, international in scope, and an axis for many women artists. Despite the dictatorship in Spain, these activist discourses gave rise to interesting pieces under the umbrella of Pop Art but with a local inflection and an anti-Franco slant. Over these two decades the work of male artists was widely disseminated, yet for their female contemporaries it was another matter and only recent research projects have brought their works to light.
