Queridas Viejas – performance by Maria Gimeno
Celebrating International Women’s Day 2020 Maria Gimeno will perform Queridas Viejas for the first time in the UK.
Queridas Viejas is part of the exhibition Mount Strange and the Temple of Fame which runs until 15 March 2020.
First published in 1950, E.H. Gombrich’s The Story of Art became the essential reference for many arts students and general readers, translated into thirty languages and selling over eight million copies worldwide. Old Master artists are in abundance, however, the women artists worthy of the veneration given by Gombrich and other historians to the Old Masters, are completely absent.
Gimeno, with kitchen knife in hand, will make visible these women artists and tell us who they are, while physically restoring each to their rightful place in The Story of Art.
The duration of the performance is approximately 2 hours with no intervals.
The event is free, however places are limited and booking is essential. Please book only if you can attend, let us know if you can no longer attend.
