«Collage by Women» | Interview with the curator Rebeka Elizegi

The combination of art and woman is among the most controversial in the history of art, female names are hidden from male predominance in the pages of books, up to the claim of feminist artworks in the seventies. But in recent years interest has grown on the side of historians, critics and the public of art on rediscovering life and artworks of the protagonists who have changed or who are writing the history of art without gender exclusions. In the catalog «Collage by Women. 50 Essential Contemporary Artists» (Promopress, 2019), the artist and curator Rebeka Elizegi presents fifty international women artists who use collage, among the most experimental artistic techniques used since the late nineteenth century. This precious publication is an invitation to reflect on the creative possibilities of the practice of collage, whose importance was taken away from the history of art, but it is above all an important testimony of contemporary female art, from the emerging artists to the most known.
