Exhibition produced by the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) and curated by Teresa Grandas.
Since the early seventies, Eulàlia Grau (b. 1946; Terrassa, Spain) has been creating photographic montages and collages in the avant-garde tradition of an art committed to values that happen to be in crisis at the time of production of the work. She criticises the way in which the media, in line with the political and economic powers, serve the interests of a controlled, censured, unjust and male-dominated society. Her aesthetic option cannot be understood without her strong ethical commitment: it holds a prominent place among the artistic practices that make up the space of expression occupied by feminist movements at the end of modernity, and that are part of the changes in opinion that radically altered our society at the end of the Franco dictatorship and during the Transition that followed.
