Selected events in Edinburgh, December 2019
Women’s events in Edinburgh, December 2019
by Monica Martins
I know…. December is all about the holidays. But still, there are some pretty amazing events going on in Edinburgh. Here is our list for this month!
Paula Rego, “Obedience and Defiance”
The art of Paula Rego is incredibly relevante for the feminist movement. If you have some free time in December, please don’t miss this!
“Spanning Rego’s career from the 1950s through to 2012, the works in this exhibition address António de Oliveira Salazar’s fascist regime, the 1997 referendum on legalising abortion in Portugal, the invasion of Iraq in 2003 by the United States and its allies and, from 2009, female genital mutilation – all of which resonate strongly with contemporary feminist and political issues. Highlights of the exhibition include Dog Woman (1952), Snow White and her Stepmother (1995), The First Mass in Brazil(1993) and Joseph’s Dream (1990). Curated by independent curator Catherine Lampert and organised by MK Gallery (Milton Keynes), the exhibition includes over 60 loans.”
