Artists Alejandra Prieto and Isidora Correa were part of the exhibition at the National Museum of Fine Arts, organized by the Chile Committee of the NMWA with the support of the Mustakis Foundation.

On April 26, high school students from the Liceo Juanita Fernández Solar de Recoleta reflected about women in the arts and metal alongside visual artists Isidora Correa and Alejandra Prieto.

The activity, entitled #EncuentroconMaestras [Meeting the Masters] was jointly organized by the Mustakis Foundation, the National Museum of Fine Arts, and the Chile Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
These reunions, endorsed by the Mustakis Foundation, seek to connect experts in various disciplines of art, science, and technology with school students so they can draw inspiration from their experience and knowledge.

During the event, students created their own work of art by interpreting everyday objects with metallic materials, informed by their conversation about gender, its representation, and the artists’ pieces.

“For the Mustakis Foundation, experiential events of this type are important because they connect various disciplines, such as art and metal in this case, with young people who are making decisions about their future”, stated Leonor Merín, Head of the Foundation’s KAOS Project.

The Chile Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts aims to visibilize, promote, and expand the reach of women’s work across all artistic disciplines.
