Bertina Lopes

IVAM Valencia

Bertina Lopes is included in the exhibition El poder com que saltamos juntas, touring from CAM Gulbekian, Lisbon to IVAM Valencia.


The exhibition brings together works by 57 creators, 27 Spanish and 30 Portuguese, aiming to show how these women – alone or collectively – rejected this experience of marginality and became agents of change, highlighting the great plurality of languages, themes and strategies that they used to survive in a world that was essentially male.


The exhibition title taken from the book Novas Cartas Portuguesas (1972), by Maria Velho da Costa, Maria Isabel Barreno and Maria Teresa Horta – is the first exhibition that jointly investigates the work developed by the artists women in the Iberian Peninsula between the final phase of dictatorships (early 1960s) and the first years of democracy (early 1980s) in Portugal and Spain.



The exhibition will tour as follows:

Valencia Institute of Modern Art (IVAM), Valencia: 30 May to 29 September 2024

Centro de Arte Moderna (CAM), Lisbon: 10 April to 15 September 2025
