As part of the Semaine des cultures étrangères 2019 organized by the Ficep (Forum des instituts culturels étrangers à Paris) on the theme of « Women creators ».

Many 20thcentury women artists have only recently gained institutional recognition by the world’s major museums. The 58th Venice Biennale in Venice also the growing presence of women in high-profile contemporary international exhibitions. While some observers see this phenomenon as a form of “retro-feminism”, others deplore that the recognition of women artists most often happens at the end of their careers, if not after their death.

How, then can women artists be given the recognition they deserve? How can art history be rewritten to take into account the rightful place of women but also the cultures and artistic backgrounds they come from?

The discussion will be followed by the opening of the Dominique Blain exhibition.
