The exhibition has become a regional milestone, being one of the first efforts to compile historically and critically the multiple discourses and artistic practices of women throughout Latin America, as well as Chicanas and Latinas in the United States. And along with this, the curatorship explores a decade full of political and countercultural movements that defined the last part of the 20th century and the current one, where many of the problems treated by the artists of that time, have been reactivated in the light of the current social movements, particularly those linked to the demands of feminism and sexual dissidence.


On the same occasion, Andrea Giunta will refer to his latest book “Feminism and Latin American Art. Stories of artists who emancipated the body “, recently edited by Siglo XXI Editores.
