Decades with art. In spite of the world. About the first women travellers and other pioneers

2022-01-31, 12:00 a.m.

Certain professions and areas of activity, even if they are now also accessible to women, have been for decades, and often centuries, the exclusive domain of men. Pioneering women had to overcome great difficulties, as demonstrated by the first travellers, such as Florence Baker, painters, like Artemisia Gentileschi or architects, among whom was Julia Morgan, among others.


The lecture will address the biographies of these great pioneers, focusing on the adversities they had to overcome in their groundbreaking work.  


The lecture refers to the exhibition "A woman's work is never done" on show at the ICC Gallery from April 26 to August 11, 2013.


Join us for an on-line meeting via the Zoom platform on January 31 at 12.00. Participation in the lecture is free of charge. To receive a link to participate, please send an application to the following e-mail address:
