“Broaching the matter of gender and cultural identities through artistic creation seems to answer one of the major questions of our day and age: What place do “minorities” have nowadays in society? After Dorothée Smith’s solo show which represented the first part, and before Et autres identités which will wind up this theme in spring2015 by challenging the place of “minorities” in artistic creation, Femina ou la réappropriation des modèles plays a comprehensive role in this line of thinking. By re- interpreting at times iconic models of art history made by men, women artists offer an egregiously political message to their re-reading of them. By asking themselves about the place they occupy in visual art, they also question their place in society.” (Guillaume Lasserre)
