Register now for the female art exhibition

REGISTRATION is now open for women artists, who wish to take part in the 2019 ‘Mujeres Adeje-Creativa’ (Creative Adeje Women) collective expo. And those interested have until 31st January to present their work for consideration.

The initiative is run by the Equality Department, and Councillor Carmen Lucía Rodríguez del Toro says: “We hope to continue to underline the importance of the role of women in the art world today, and give them an increased presence in the art galleries generally.

“We also want to pay homage to those who have gone before, who have fought to overcome social convention and discrimination, which sought to stifle their artistic success.”

The selected works will form part of an exhibition in Adeje Cultural Centre, which will take place from 22nd February until 18th March, as part of a series of acts celebrating International Women’s Day 2019.

Participation requirements

The competition is open to women over 16, professionals or self-taught, who are living in the Canary Islands. And, as the objective of the exhibition is to demonstration the diversity of women artists, no specific theme is required.

Interested artists must present a single work of art in any discipline (painting, sculpture, photograph, graphic design, video art, installation, performance, etc), no taller than 1.20 metres.

In the case of installations, the organisers will decide whether it can be accommodated or not, depending on size. And video art presentations must be no longer than 180 seconds in duration.

Video art presentations must be no longer than 180 seconds in duration.

Works submitted must be ready for showing, that is to say with all the necessary elements in place, and if the display requires some form of special treatment the organisers will get in contact with the artist to organise mounting.

The forms to be filled in and submitted are available for download online,, and you will be asked to submit your personal data, and a photograph of the work you wish to exhibit.

From 1st February, the Equality Department will contact those artists who have been selected for participation, to give them full details of how and when their works should be brought to the cultural centre.

A judging panel will also be selecting what, in their opinion, is the best work of the collection, with the chosen artists offered a full exhibition in the Cultural Centre during 2019. The criteria for choosing the best entry will be include technique, creativity and originality.

The collective will also have a virtual catalogue of all the works on display, and the artists.
