A group exhibition of women artists organized by Monnaie de Paris in collaboration with the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington D.C.
Women House is the meeting of two notions: a gender - the female - and a space - the domestic one. Architecture and public space have been masculine while the domestic space was for a long time the prison or the shelter of women: this historical evidence is nevertheless not a fatality and the exhibition Women House shows this. On a 1000 Sq m. floor area and in some of Monnaie de Paris’ courtyards, it brings together 40 female artists of the 20th and 21st centuries who take up this complex subject and place women at the center of a history of which they were absent.
