Roberta González : keynote figure for the “Journées du Matrimoine” 2022

Roberta González is the keynote figure for the 2022 edition of the “Journées du Matrimoine”. This annual cultural event, which coincides with the “Journées du Patrimoine”, devoted to celebrating French cultural heritage, aims to highlight the specific contribution of female creators.  In conjunction with this event, the exhibition “Roberta González : l’art de voler de ses propres ailes”, will take place at the galerie Espace des Femmes (35 rue Jacob, Paris 6e) from September 9-30, 2022. This exhibition retraces how her artistic career takes flight as she cultivates her personal, independent style.  The works chosen center around female figures and birds, two of her favored motifs.
