MusicaFemina

An exhibition/sound installation by Irene Suchy and Clarisse Maylunas about the significant role that women have played in the creation of music throughout the centuries.

 

Vienna, of all places, hasn’t hosted a major exhibition on the subject of Music, in any shape or form, in nearly twenty years. Now, in this most timely project, one of its great art-halls is to focus on the significant role that women have played in the making of music throughout the centuries.

In July and August 2018 the exhibition took place at the Orangery at the Schönbrunn Castle in Vienna, now the project goes on tour with planned stops in various cities throughout Austria and Europe as well as the United States.

At first sight, you might not know these personalities, who contributed significantly to European music-life – however after visiting the exhibition the striking experience will let you know what you have missed.

From different perspectives this Installation will most artfully highlight the substantial contribution that women have made both in the fields of composition and music-making too. From Hildegard von Bingen to Olga Neuwirth, women’s hitherto unrecognised profile in the history of music will be seen in a wider political context now that efforts have been made, both in Europe and internationally, to create a more gender-balanced world. Indeed Austria’s Foreign Ministry, for its part, published a book focusing on women’s music for the first time in 2009.


Designed in concept to astonish and fascinate, this project has interactive features and altogether it is highly approachable.
