On December the 12th at 7 pm CAM museum inaugurates the exhibition I am woman, curated by Antonio Manfredi, with paintings, photographs, installations, videos and performances made by women for women.
In opposition to what Guerilla girls have stated protesting as women artists are seldom present in museums, CAM has, among its permanent collection artists, a high femminine percentage. Also because of this, Casoria museum will is to pay homage with the exhibition I am woman to the women world, a complex, rich world not apart from news issues and tragedies though aiming to overcome gender division. More than 80 worldwide women artists have been invitated to utter their identity, surprising for the variety of portraits they have realized involving a number of themes sadly connected to women. Thus, hard and screamed out, or introspective and delicate works are born, like Laura Niola (Italy) and Miriam Wuttke (Germany) performances taking place on the exhibition opening night. Through a hard language, impressive images women artists contribute to female struggle as art can be a gun to become aware. From pedophilia to women condition in muslim countries, from non reciprocated love to the abused body, women life seems to be marked since birth. So women, princesses in their dreams, turn into deformed faces because of domestic violence, withheald, concealed and too often turning to femenecide, meanwhile the ones taking heart and denouncing since tired to be victim become an isolated voice, almost an exception in a sexist world. CAM contributes to fight against denoucing omission and launches a campaign on Facebook and a debate with the representatives of associations and groups caring about women abuse in Campania region. “Let’s break the silence” is the Casoria museum campaign, started on the day against women abuse. Private messages being sent to CAM (CAM|Casoria Contemporary Art Museum) FB page denouncing discrimination and abuse on women will be shown on the opening
day of the exhibition I am woman as samples of denouncing. The meeting Violence on women_ a concrete help is taking place on the opening day of the exhibition I am woman, on December the 12th at 6 pm at CAM, with the participation of Luisa Marro, Department of Culture of the City of Casoria, Maria Fusco, from Arcidonna Napoli Onlus managing the antiviolence center “ A.U.R.O.R.A.” of Napoli, Barbara Abazia, from the volounteer association Telefono Rosa of Napoli, a deputy from Sportello Lilith San Sebastiano al Vesuvio, Maurizio Lillo, from La casa di Marinella onlus Acerra, Donatella Tacconelli, Repubblica, introducing.
