The exhibition “However I’m here” is the first of a series of tributes to women artists who defied the canons of their time and dared to dream another present to transform the future. In this case, the honoree is the writer María Elena Walsh and the show is named after a fragment of her song “Como la cicaarra”. The organization of the exhibition and the exhibited works are from the group of artists “Trashumante Women” and the closing will be on May 31 with live music.
Since 2017 a group of artist friends who shared the same way of seeing life and art decided to come together and form the group of women artists “Trashumantes”. The transhumance is the shepherding of sheep in continuous movement, “it has this name because our realizing is to take and show what we do so that it moves and in some way we feed back on this and go back to where we started with more energy and with inspiration for new projects, “explained Lujan Oliveira, member of the group.
The exhibition that is exhibited in the Museo Yaparí is an interactive exhibition that includes musical instruments in ceramics, textiles, prints, drawings and everything is for sale. “The interesting thing about the show is that in this collective we are women who dedicate ourselves to different artistic disciplines, we work together but with very different works, the trigger is María Elena but if they are going to visit they will see that each one has a different production than the other. One of our precepts is to educate people and get used to going to see samples, that’s why we expose, invite people who consume art, that instead of buying a china cup, buy handmade pottery, which has a design , which is exclusive “explained Liliana Suarez Holze.
Also on June 1 and 2 will dictate a workshop with the anthropologist and ceramist Karina Garret on sound ceramics. Those who are interested in signing up for the workshop will be able to get in touch with the facebook group Transhuman Women Monte Afuera. “We want to continue professionalizing and this possibility of bringing people that we love because if not we have to take courses to Buenos Aires, Rosario or Cordoba, where important courses are taught. Having the opportunity to bring artists we admire so that they have the opportunity to come and dictate a course here seems interesting, “Oliveira said.
