Throughout history, women have been involved in making art, whether as creators and innovators of new forms of artistic expression, patrons, collectors, sources of inspiration, or as Art historians and critics. Women have been and continue to be integral to the institution of Art, but despite being engaged with the Art World in many ways, women artists have always found hostility and obstruction in the traditional narrative of Art History.
In Mexico and Latin-America the voices of these feminine creators have faced challenges due to gender biases but have been an essential part of a strong patriarchic culture. From finding difficulty in training to selling their work and gaining recognition Hispanic women artists have proofed to be resilient. Hispanic Women Making Art: Creative Empowerment is a group exhibition of six artist originally from Mexico, Chile, Puerto Rico and some now US citizens.
Curated by Marcela Correa this exhibition explores different themes and narratives creating one whole voice of empowerment.
