Conference ‘María Blanchard. A Painter in Spite of Cubism’

Apr 23 and May 23, 2024

Two conferences, in both face-to-face and online format, address some of the issues examined in the exhibition María Blanchard. A Painter in Spite of Cubism

The temporary exhibition to which these conferences is connected sets out to highlight the rich symbolism, social commitment, formal complexity and innovative nature of the output of this woman painter from Santander. There is no doubt that her substantial oeuvre was undervalued in a cultural context that believed in the inferiority of female artists. As a painter committed to a particular way of living and creating until the end of her life, she pushed the boundaries of gender stereotypes.
