Article in La Vanguardia on Antifémina

We share this great article published in La Vanguardia about the new edition of the book Antifémina by Colita, represented by our gallery, and Mª Aurèlia Campany.

Antifémina was the first openly feminist graphic book in the history of post-Francoism, with texts by Maria Aurèlia Capmany and photographs by Colita, and it was a book that was practically impossible to find. Published in 1977, it was kidnapped by the Francoist structures, still dominant in the middle of the democratic transition.

The Barcelona City Council and  Editorial Terranova, with the collaboration of the Colita Photography Archive, recover the publication of Antifémina, 43 years after its original publication.

Gonzalo Elvira in Memoria del Porvenir. MUSAC Collection

Gonzalo Elvira, artist represented by RocioSantaCruz, participates in the exhibition Memoria del Porvenir in the Museum of Contemporary Art of Castilla y Léon (MUSAC). The exhibition will be open to the public until the 1st of May 2022.

Lo imborrable, taking its title from the book by Juan José Saer, is a series of 10 ink drawings on paper which reproduce the covers of books that were banned in Argentina during the dictatorship from 1976 to 1983. Through this series, Elvira highlights the violence of the dictatorship and its psychological repercussions for generations of Argentinians. The act of drawing with ink is a significant one; in a poetic gesture, the artist seems to want to record in his memory the content and the titles of the books that constituted freedoms stolen by the authoritarian regime.
