guided by: Breda Kolar Sluga, exhibition curator

The UGM proudly invites you to a guided tour of the first of two consecutive exhibitions of art works that emerged from the Wom@rts project's artistic residencies. The residencies were in the fields of printmaking, comics & illustration, and lens-based media. The artists had responded to Simone de Beauvoir's groundbreaking work The Second Sex that was published seventy years ago. In their work, the artists relate to various media, cultural, and generational experiences, asking themselves about the "nature" of the woman, her social embeddedness, about their own history and their future steps.

More about the artists and the exhibition:
artists from lens-based media: Ana Pečar (Slovenia), María Castellanos (Spain), Cristina Busto Alvarez (Spain), Marija Stonytė (Lithuania), Hanne Larsen (Norway), Stéphanie Cadoret (France); from the field of printmaking: Haya Blanco (Spain), Fernanda Álvarez Jimenez (Spain), Aoiffe Barret (Ireland), Neringa Žukauskaitė (Lithuania) and Audrey Potrat (France); and from comics & illustration: Samira Kentrić (Slovenia), Korina Hunjak (Croatia), Merieme Mesfioui (France), Nanu González (Spain), Fionnualla Doran (Ireland).

Wom@rts is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.

The tour is free of charge.
