Sobre una mujer / About a Woman
Curated by Elda Harrington and Silvia Mangialardi

Tuesday-Sunday 10AM-5PM

OAS AMA | Art Museum of the Americas
201 18th Street NW
Washington, DC 20006


The OAS AMA | Art Museum of the Americas and the FLA-Fundación Luz Austral, with the support of the Inter-American Commission of Women (CIM) Sobre una mujer (About a Woman), an exhibition of contemporary photography of the Americas. This exhibition coincides with the 95th anniversary of the CIM. Curated by Elda Harrington and Sylvia Mangialardi, this exhibition was presented online through the museum’s social media platforms in March of 2023, and will now come to life along the museum’s physical walls.

This exhibition highlights contemporary women photographers not as a monolith but as being of a wide range of ages and economic circumstances. Each experience is unique, as are each person's values and ideas. There are recurring themes of social and family violence, physical and moral harassment, weariness in the face of daily injustice, stamina for personal struggle and conquest. These images allow us to reflect on the dichotomy between ferocity and vulnerability, motherhood, the appearance of the mechanical in the face of the simultaneous and vertiginous tasks, the links with objects in the domestic space. There is one—and only one—generalization that is possible and verifiable. Women are the only majority that even today, in the 21st century, continues to face such discrimination.
