About the exhibition

Curated by Miguel A. López, codirector and curator of TEOR/éTica (San José, Costa Rica), this exhibition brings together for the first time the distinct, yet intertwined bodies of work created by two Costa Rican artists from different generations: Victoria Cabezas (b. 1950) and Priscilla Monge (b. 1968). Each of them is acknowledged as a major figure within her respective generation. Both artists investigate their own subjectivity in relation to social-political economies, sexual violence, and gender roles and stereotypes. They question the perception of the body as well as normative ideas of masculinity and femininity in Latin American cultures.

Watch a video with the artists and learn about the feminist themes in the exhibition.
