Ahead of International Women's Day, the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome stages Io dico Io - I say I, an exhibition comprising the work of Italian women artists.The exhibition, running from 1 March until 23 May, features the work of around 50 Italian artists from different generations and social contexts.
The gallery says the show "originates from a necessity to take the floor and speak for oneself in order to assert one’s subjectivity," and "looks deep into the word we already have, feminism."
The artists whose work is on on display include Carla Accardi, Vanessa Beecroft, Lisetta Carmi, Isabella Ducrot, Marisa Merz, Elisa Montessori, Antonietta Raphaël, Tatiana Trouvé and Francesca Woodman.
