The second part of our exhibition “Room of One’s Own” continues the concept inspired by Virginia Woolf’s well-known novel. The book advanced to a standard reading of the women’s movement since the 1970s. As a young woman, Virginia Woolf was subjected to the conditions of Victorian society, which provided only a very very narrow sphere of activity and development for women. Even today, her novel is particularly relevant, opening up a universal discussion about the need for a space for creation, for stillness and, of course, for art. In our group exhibition, we present the work of a variety of outstanding women artists who approach their work in relation to science, history and literature, shaping the course of art history.
“Now my belief is that this poet who never wrote a word and was buried at the crossroads still lives. She lives in you and in me, and in many other women who are not here tonight (…). But she lives, for great poets do not die.” – Virginia Woolf. A Room of One’s Own. 1929
