Virtual Guest Speaker - Gabriela Sanchez

Uncovering Women's Cultural Heritage in Latin American Muralism

This presentation explores some aspects of mural art made by women, and their various forms of representation. It questions whether the construction of an artistic field, made of and by women, allows for the possibility of leaving a mark in art history,
a space where their contribution goes unnoticed even today. It will also establish how women themselves are those who reconstruct
a history that allows them to be made visible in a public and monumental space.
