Virginia Jaramillo | Centre Pompidou | Women in Abstraction

May 19, 2021

Hales is pleased to announce the inclusion of Virginia Jaramillo in the historic group exhibition Women in Abstraction at Centre Pompidou, Paris, France on view until August 23 2021.

The exhibition sets out to write the history of the contributions of women artists to abstraction, with one hundred and six artists and more than five hundred works dating from the 1860s to the 1980s.

Women in Abstraction provides an opportunity to discover artists who represent discoveries both for the specialist and for the general public. It showcases the work of many of these women who suffer from a lack of visibility and recognition beyond the frontiers of their countries. Reviewing their specific contribution to the history of abstraction, the exhibition focuses on the careers of artists who were sometimes unjustly eclipsed from the history of art.

In connection with the Women in Abstraction exhibition, the Centre Pompidou is organising an international symposium on 19, 20 and 21 May 2021 in partnership with the association AWARE  (Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions) and the LEGS (Laboratory for Gender and Sexuality Studies – University Paris 8 Vincennes Saint-Denis / Paris Nanterre), with Adrienne Edwards, Briony Fer, Harmony Hammond and Griselda Pollock as guests of honour.
