Curated by Sofia Gotti and Caterina Iaquinta
The 20th Women’s Biennial in Ferrara, to which Gramma_Epsilon had the honour to contribute with the loan of 3 works by Amalia Etlinger, an artist very close to Mirella Bentivoglio and to whom they are also dedicated.

Biennale Donna, a historic event dedicated to contemporary female creativity promoted by UDI – Unione Donne in Italia (Women’s Union in Italy), this year marks its twentieth edition.

From 14 April to 30 June 2024 Palazzo Bonacossi in Ferrara will host Yours in Solidarity – Altre Storie tra Arte e Parola (Other Stories between Art and Words) curated by Sofia Gotti and Caterina Iaquinta, an exhibition bringing together installations, sculptures, performances and textile works created by six international women artists: Binta Diaw, Amelia Etlinger, Bracha L. Ettinger, Sara Leghissa, Muna Mussie and Nicoline van Harskamp.

The project sets out to highlight some of the aspects that have characterised the Ferrara event since its inception and at the same time to enhance its national visibility. The driving concept is to continue to bring women artists to the fore “from the background” while also presenting “a new arsenal of voices” ready to advocate for the need to rethink women’s presence within a world that has become increasingly complex and polarised. Alongside the artists’ works, a valuable selection of historical materials from UDI will be showcased, including archival documents, catalogues, leaflets, banners and photographs, retracing the Biennale’s milestones and evolution.
