International Art project About Women
Curator Marta Valls, supported by Volvera city council within the larger project NarraVolvera, in the wonderful Pilotti chapel, presents an Amazing art project that will be held June 29-30.
About Woman is a reflection about the many different ways of Being ,feeling and sensing Women in our current world , expressed by artists views and perceptions from all over the world, with their own cultural and social languages, trying to avoid stereotypes.
Therefore, the curator Marta Valls presents this international art exhibition developed in two contemporary shows :
• ABOUT WOMEN is an artistic, social, and demand project created by the artist Katia Muñoz. One of its main objectives is to contribute to the visibility of artists - especially creative women, create a network of information and promote interaction between artists and society on the subject of WOMEN.
