VIII Biennial of Contemporary Art Fundación ONCE

Women and disability

The ONCE Foundation resumes after the years of the pandemic the eighth edition of its Contemporary Art Biennial. On this occasion, the exhibition is made up solely of women and takes place under the slogan Woman and disability. Curated by Maite Barrera, it exhibits a hundred works by fifty artists, the vast majority (about 80%) with disabilities. Among them are Louise Bourgeois, Meret Oppenheim, Ángela de la Cruz, Emilie Gossiaux, Lucía Beijlsmit, Rebecca Horn, Paloma Navares, Judith Scott and Jana Sterbak.

One of the objectives of the ONCE Foundation since its creation more than 30 years ago is to achieve the full inclusion of people with disabilities in all walks of life. The ONCE Foundation focuses a large part of its efforts on the labor inclusion of people with disabilities. But at the same time, it is aware that other areas such as culture cannot be forgotten in order to achieve effective and total inclusion. For this reason, in 2006, it organized the 1st Fundación ONCE International Art Biennial in Madrid, with the primary objective of recognizing and disseminating the work of artists with some type of disability, as well as promoting their access and participation in the art market.
