Room 428 Outside the Canon. Women Pop Artists in Spain

Room?s details

At the end of the 60s and during the following decade, second-wave feminism became a sort of international lingua franca that worked as the core idea in the work of many women artists. In Spain, Francoist dictatorship notwithstanding, these activist discourses offered many an interesting proposal under the umbrella of Pop Art, provided with a local inflection and an anti-Francoist discourse. If the work of male artists was widely distributed within as well as without the Spanish borders, this was not the case with their female colleagues. In spite of belonging to the same generation, these women have had to wait until the latest research for their forgotten works to gain visibility.
