Guided visits

Women in Contemporary Art

On every Saturday and Sunday in May 2022—including Labor Day—Inhotim’s Educators offer the public the mediated visit “Women in Contemporary Art”  

Registration starts at 1:40 pm at the Reception. The visit departs from the same place, at 2 pm. For each tour of the mediated visit, 15 spots will be available.   

Conceived by the educators Sônia Menezes and Raiany Costa, the visit will focus on the women artists present in Inhotim’s Art Collection. For this experience, different types of resources will be employed—speech, objects, paper, mind maps. Thus, each visit will have a unique route and approach and will have the signature of the educator that devised it.   

The visits will approach some works by women artists on view at Inhotim, such as Adriana Varejão, Claudia Andujar, Lucia Koch, Lygia Pape, Marilá Dardot, Rivane Neuenschwander, Valeska Soares and Yayoi Kusama.  

About the Visit 

In the History of Art, we can notice the almost total absence of women artists until the first half of the 20th century. After the Second World War, there was a shift in the center of artistic activity from Europe to the United States.   

In the 1960s and 1970s, the collapse of European colonialism in Africa, Southeast Asia and the Caribbean, as well as the rise of feminist movements in the United States, Latin America and Europe started to take shape. From then on, women began to claim space in the job market, in politics, universities and in the recent artistic and cultural production.
