Who is a “woman artist”? Elles Font L’Abstraction, which translates to women in abstraction, is a historic exhibition which asks this question. It features two important Indian contemporary artists-Nasreen Mohamedi and Arpita Singh amongst 110 artists and 500 works.
Most exhibitions devoted to the history of abstract art have often downplayed the fundamental role played by women in the development of this language. This exhibition enables us to re-evaluate the importance of their contribution.
