VIII Contemporary Art Biennial Fundación ONCE
Tuesday - Sunday, 10 am - 8 pm
After being postponed during the pandemic, Fundación ONCE is celebrating the eighth edition of its Contemporary Art Biennial. On this occasion, the exhibition will feature work exclusively by women, under the theme: Women and disability. Curated by Maite Barrera, the exhibition displays a hundred works by some 50 artists, most of whom (around 80%) have some form of disability. They include Louise Bourgeois, Meret Oppenheim, Ángela de la Cruz, Emilie Gossiaux, Lucía Beijlsmit, Rebecca Horn, Paloma Navares, Judith Scott, and Jana Sterbak.
Since being founded over 30 years ago, one of Fundación ONCE’s objectives has been to ensure the inclusion of people with disabilities in every aspect of life. One of the main focuses of Fundación ONCE is the inclusion of people with disabilities in the labour market. At the same time, the association makes a conscious effort to not overlook other areas of society, such as culture, which are equally as important in ensuring a full and effective inclusion. With this in mind, in 2006 the 1st edition of the Fundación ONCE International Art Biennial was launched in Madrid with the primary objective of recognising and disseminating the work of artists with disabilities, thus strengthening their access to and participation in the art market
