Toro, Zamora, jul - sept 2021 (first edition)
The Iberoamericana of Toro is a revolutionary exhibition of contemporary art whose protagonists are Ibero-American women of the 21st century. An initiative that vindicates the role of women as artists, as well as the need to decentralize cultural events outside the big capitals. It takes place in the historic city of Toro, which during the summer months becomes a true museum of contemporary art where artists of recognized national and international prestige dialogue with the works of ancient art from the venues that host them, mainly churches-museums. and historical spaces.
Given the venues selected to host the exhibition, the museographic proposal is born from a direct dialogue with the resource par excellence used in the sacred construction; the arch, whose evolution has been defining the different architectural styles throughout history. A series of walls of different sizes and proportions have been built, finished off in the shape of an arch, to compartmentalize the spaces and offer a surface for the work to be hung. The objective has been to dialogue with the original architecture, and for this purpose many of the original furniture, cabinets, altars or altarpieces have also been adapted, transforming them into contemporary museographic resources.
