ALBUQUERQUE – The Cervantes Institute at The National Hispanic Cultural Center (NHCC) is happy to announce the opening of a photography exhibit named Mujeres y Mujeres (Women & Women).
The exhibit is curated by Blanca Berlín and features the work of five artists who exemplify some of the best in contemporhttpary Spanish photography. It displays the smooth forms of the female body as seen by Isabel Muñoz; the perplexing androgyny of artist Beatriz Moreno’s work; the superimposed images of Gabriela Grech that convey mental & emotional confusion; Ouka Leele’s metaphysical “Mater Dolorosa” fiction; & Soledad Córdoba’s vision of the body as a limitless source of creation. This exhibit marked the opening of the Spanish Presidency of the European Union in the United States this past January in Washington, DC.
The exhibit, opening Thursday, February 3, 2011, is part of the NHCC’s Women and Creativity programming which is a month-long series of events that celebrates women’s creativity across the disciplines which begins this March. “We are thankful for the Cervantes Institute’s contribution to this month long celebration” said NHCC Executive Director Estevan Rael-Galvez. “We value our partnership with this prestigious institution and enjoy the year long programming that they bring to Albuquerque and the NHCC.”

Mujeres y Mujeres opens with a free reception that is open to the public on Thursday, February 3, 2011 at 6:30 pm in the Pete V. Domenici Education Center.

The National Hispanic Cultural Center also hosts year-around educational, literary, music, dance and theatre productions and events. For a complete list of current and upcoming programs, visit The NHCC is part of the State of New Mexico’s Department of Cultural Affairs.
