The personal is political, art made by Latin American women'.


This year marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of Linda Nochlin's essay, which, under the question "Why have there been no great women artists?", gave the essay its title, while at the same time opening up art history with a new field of research that aims to generate collective awareness of the role of women in art, from the place they occupy within art institutions, the productions made by women, their working techniques and themes, to their representation as models. It's evident that there has been a change in recent years and a revision of the history of art is taking place, in many cases carried out by the artists themselves, and even artistic practice itself has joined the movement that this essay would detonate; how not to understand it in this way as political art and a clear heir to the idea of The personal is political. This movement has crossed the world and Latin American art has not been insensitive to it, quite the contrary, its involvement is notable, as can be seen in the different works of the artists Helen Escobedo, Ana Sacerdote, Marisol Escobar, Magdalena Jitrik, Remedios Varo, Elvira Gascón, Marianne Gast, Yani Pecanins, Teresa Serrano, Gina Arizpe, María María Acha-Kutscher, Lucía Madriz, Ángela Bonadies and Glenda Zapata, which are included in this exhibition.
