Last week I had the honour to join the open discussion "VisualizArte" about women artists in the IES María Telo (Los Corrales de Buelna, Spain). This secondary school was back in time the place where I was a student, from where I hold meaningful memories and inspiration from various professors who taught me how to keep being curious, feeding with learning, no matter how old you are.
This open discussion was led by María Consuelo Toledo Cañamero with the invitation of also Isabel Victorino, local artist and Andrea Galaxina art historian both involved in feminist approaches. Despite that I was present virtually it was very special as I believe this content is very relevant for growing as humans, it is a reality that being a woman and artist is still a complex ground to work from while defending the need to keep giving voice to women whom work has been shadowed by the male driven art system we still face and all its consecuences.
Thanks to all for your contributions and specially to Chelo for her work to organise this space.
