NEW YORK. “Ilustrad/as. A look at female creation in contemporary illustration” 10 september – 14 november 2020. Instituto Cervantes.
Illustration is one of the most imaginative branches of creation, currently undergoing a remarkable cycle, the work of illustrators, and especially female illustrators, is being highly recognized at both the professional and artistic levels. In the publishing field, where the concept of the illustrated book is increasingly being used, the work of female illustrators stands out, favoring the republishing of universal classics with their creations and visually completing the creation of current projects. Curated by Matilde Rodríguez, the show brings together creators of national and international renown, such as Luisa Rivera from Chile, Sonia Pulido, María Hesse, Helena Pérez García and Lara Lars, all from Spain. The exhibition seeks to focus on the freer, more creative and personal work of the featured illustrators, as well as exploring the different formats and techniques with which they work: silkscreen prints, collages, ceramics, animation, risographs, digital drawing, sculptures and installations.
