To Write Down All Their Names – Spanish female artists from 1960 until today

The titel of this exhibition is inspired by a work by Dora García, 100 obras de arte imposibles (100 Impossible Works of Art) from 2001, which consists of a list of a hundred sentences that refer to the acceptance of failure, to the impossibility of realizing something: "To dram the dreams of others; To live the lives of others; To be with every single human being, even only for a second" are some of these 100 unachievable proposals. In the context of an exhibition dedicated exclusively to woman artists, the phrase "To write down all their names" suggests a poetic action, but also a poetic "capacity for action."
