SANTA MOONICA. Cristina de Middel y Lola del Fresno “Las Hijas de los Días: 7 Female Views from the Margins” january 27 – april 19, 2020. Airport Gallery.

Science affirms that we are made out of atoms, but Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano states that we’re also made out of stories. In his book, Los hijos de los días (Children of the Days), he writes one story that reflects the feelings and vicissitudes for every day of a year. Inspired by this exercise, we wanted to reflect upon relevant ideas that inhabit our daily lives in only a week’s span of time across the globe. To represent each day of the week, we selected the gazes of seven women from 18th Street Arts Center, PhotoEspaña, and Arttextum that reflect the spirit of our times, starting with photography as a medium of departure and expanding the field to include drawing, installation, and performance. Climate unrest, the physical displacement of the idea of home, and the removal of socio-historical ties that oppress women were the stories told by Cristina de Middel, Eunice Adorno, Lola del Fresno, Luciana Abait, Doni Silver Simons, Sabine Pearlman, and Pamela Simon-Jensen. The works of these creative women narrate sublime and challenging stories of our everyday that call out to be heard and comprehended in order to collectively transform realities. The women highlighted in this show are only a fraction of the multiple voices around the world who are tracking alternate ways of belonging to time.

In collaboration with Arttextum, Tejido de agentes culturales inspirados en Latinoamérica, Promoción del Arte, Ministry of Culture and Sports, Madrid, Spain.

Curated by Begoña Torres and 18th Street Arts Center’s Assistant Curator Frida Cano.
