Instituto Cervantes in Manchester presents the exhibition Ilustrada/s: a look at female creation in contemporary illustration with the curator Matilde Rodríguez in an evening with live Latin music by Luma Trio.


Ilustrada/s is an exhibition that focuses on the most representative work created by twelve of the most innovative contemporary female illustrators (Bea Lema Helena Pérez García Iria do Castelo Iria Fafián Lara Lars Luisa Rivera Malota María Hesse Nuria Figueiredo Pelo di Cane Sara Landera and Sonia Pulido) underlining the artistic value of illustration as a means of expression and recognition. Portraits self-portraits everyday and dreamlike scenes address universal themes and symbols that challenge the viewer depict women independently openly and with a gender perspective and establish a direct connection between what is real and what is represented revealing the illustrator herself in the illustration. This anthology also showcases different techniques and formats providing a snapshot of the creative experimental and dynamic nature of the contemporary illustration landscape through artists that think outside the formal limits of illustration and use their creations to champion the concept of "the illustrator as an author" in its most inclusive and universal conception.

The exhibition compiles a selection of artworks showcased at the second edition of MiiC Mostra Internacional de Ilustración Contemporánea which took place in Santiago de Compostela (Spain) between December 2018 and March 2019.


Luma Trio is part of a musical project developed by Luma Creations to celebrate the music and musical heritage of Latin America. Led by brothers Óscar & Francisco Carrasco and P. Max Alder making the trio as a percussionist - The trio play an array of instruments including guitar charango cuatro venezolano quena Bombo Congas Cajon and percussion.
