Women to Watch II (Metalmorphosis Exhibition)
Metalmorphosis presents works by twelve Chilean women artists which revolve around metal and its transformations. This visual arts exhibition –organized by the National Museum of Fine Arts and the Chile Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts– is a prelude to Heavy Metal, Women to Watch, a project brought forward by the National Museum of Women in the Arts based in Washington DC (US).
The curator of the National Museum of Fine Arts, Gloria Cortes Aliaga, was responsible for pre-selecting the Chilean artists for the exhibit that is being presented with the support of the Mustakis Foundation and the “Cultural Donations Tax Law,” as well as with the collaboration of DIRAC, (the Directorate of Cultural Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Chile), Ward Van Lines Company, and FR Insurance Group.
Women to Watch 2018
The Women to Watch program, created in 2008, is aimed at the national and foreign NMWA committees. Every two or three years, the Museum hosts an exhibitionof works by emergent women artists addressing various disciplines in the USA and other countries where Museum committees exist.
The museum in Washington DC selected Gloria Cortés as the Chilean curator in charge of providing support for this year’s international exhibit. She was responsible for choosing the works of the Chilean artists that were presented to the Museum’s curator, who ultimately chose “Pyrite Mirror”-a work by Alejandra Prieto.
The work of the Chilean artist will be part of the group of artists that use metal as a creative medium. This year’s exhibit, Heavy Metal, looks to break through the predominantly masculine narrative that surrounds the work with metal and that places women in the category of “fine arts,”design, arts and crafts and decorative arts— definitions that are rooted in gender discrimination.
The exhibit will be on view from June 28 through September 16, 2018 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington DC. This year, marks the fifth edition of Women to Watch and the second time that Chile participates with a national artist. In 2015, the video series “Rhythms”by Andrea Lira was selected as the participating entry.
