Revered and feared. Feminine power in art and beliefs

With sculptures, sacred objects and works of art from various continents and from the ancient world to the present, this exhibition shows us how goddesses, demons, saints and other spiritual beings have played a relevant role in our understanding of the world. From wisdom, passion and desire to war, justice and mercy, a cross-cultural journey is made through different expressions of feminine spiritual powers around the world. The selection of 154 pieces from the British Museum, in dialogue with a selection of renowned contemporary artists, invites us to reflect on feminine power and femininity today. Admission: €6 (free for CaixaBank customers and children under 16).
