The Absence of Women Artists in a Textile Museum
5:00 PM
Oaxaca Lending Library
Description:
Presented by Hector Meneses, Director: Museo Textil de Oaxaca
For a couple of years now, and more and more recently, art museums are reassessing their histories, programs, and collections to embrace more diversity. Women are one of the several groups that have been kept aside in art history. How has this archaic view impacted a textile museum, where most of its ethnographic collections have been created by women? Are there any additional factors that should be taken into consideration in this reassessment? Maybe there is a crucial one: racism.

Desde hace un par de años, y cada vez más recientemente, los museos de arte están reevaluando sus historias, programas y colecciones para abarcar más diversidad. Las mujeres son uno de los varios grupos que se han mantenido a un lado en la historia del arte. ¿Cómo ha impactado esta visión arcaica en un museo textil, donde la mayoría de sus colecciones etnográficas han sido creadas por mujeres? ¿Hay algún factor adicional que deba tenerse en cuenta en esta reevaluación? Quizás haya una crucial: el racismo.
