Hi Annick and colleagues
The exhibition in Bogota was curated by John Angel Rodriquez - yes?
There has also be some exchange on the Yasmin list about this. One contributor commented that there were no French artists involved. I don't know if this was a serious comment.
Liliane Lijn is someone whose work has been pioneering in many senses. She wrote a lovely essay recently called Poetry, Language, Code, Industry which we commissioned for the Visualise: Making Art in Context publication (published by Anglia Ruskin University November 2013). If anyone wishes to contact me offlist I can try to send you the book or at least the essay. Annick, it is not (yet) in French but I guess could be easily translated - I could ask Liliane - and certainly it offers good insights into the nature of being a female artist on pioneering ground over the past five decades.

The spontaneous list was necessary as a reaction, but I
would be more reluctant in building a map : it puts again
women in an inferior position.
Reacting, like in this case, is more important to me and of
course including them in exhibitions, conferences, etc. And
documenting their work through art history research and writing.
This said, in the Leonardo/Olats Pioneers & Pathbreakers
project : only one women + a couple !!! Ouch ! Should I do
what I advocate for ?!
OK. We did not move further into this project by lack of
fundings, but still...
If someone is ready to write in French about a woman, I
would be delighted. I would love to have something on Vera
Molnar. At the moment, I have zero budget to move on, on
this project ... and it does take real time to do it in a
If someone is interested ....
