About Mujer Artista:

In 2014, after a series of conversations between Latin Canadian women artists Cecilia Araneda, Praba Pilar, and Monica Martinez, we came up with the idea of participating in an artistic process from the starting point of collective dialogue. We named this initiative Mujer Artista. From our core group of three, Mujer Artista has gradually expanded over the years to involve more artists.

Mujer Artista acknowledges the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts, MAWA: Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art and aceartinc.
