The Monastery of Pedralbes

The sounds and words of women at Pedralbes Monastery

The ending of the exhibition ‘Silenced Women’ is to be marked by a piano concert and a poetry recital with the work of great Catalan women poets.

The exhibition , ‘Silenced Women’ on the artistic and intellectual legacy of Eulàlia Anzizu (1868-1916), a nun at the convent who was a promoter of the Renaissance and a leading figure behind the reconstruction of the monastery building. Anzizu is an iconic, though hidden figure in Catalan history, who corresponds to the model of a silenced woman. To mark the end of the exhibition, the Monastery of Pedralbes is celebrating a final day with ‘Dones Sonores’, with the aim of lending a voice to other talented and creative women who are still only a footnote in the history of music and literature.

The evening will be conducted by the actress Gemma Reguant, who will recite poems by Catalan women poets, accompanied by the pianist Anna Alemany, who will play instrumental pieces by Clara Schumann backing the words of Reguant. Among the poets represented are Clementina Arderiu, Maria-Mercè Marçal, Maria Àngels Anglada, Marta Pessarrodona, Olga Xirinacs oand Dolors Miquel.

If you're interested in attending, registration is required.
