Carmen Calvo

View of the Carmen Calvo exhibition, Julio González Award 2022, at IVAM © Miguel Lorenzo. IVAM

The IVAM in Valencia pays tribute to the plastic artist Carmen Calvo with this great exhibition encompassing her entire career.

A total of 70 works recreate the artist's creative universe, including her first forays into the field of installation. A journey through her career that shows her drawings, photographs, the postcards that fascinate her so much, or her sculptural work with dolls, wax figures and mannequins.

Carmen Calvo's work is characterised by the recovery and resignification of material remains, objects and images, to trace stories that reflect and challenge the viewer on issues such as religion and sexuality, childhood and education, or violence and inequality. In the last decade, the artist has also intensified her critical gaze towards the oppression and inequality of women, through the use of day-to-day photographic images rescued and worked on.
