Is the right to come and go the same for everyone? What would a city be like designed by and for women in all their diversity – black, disabled, lesbians, pregnant, trans, elderly, mothers? The exposure City Woman discusses this topic to promote reflection on access, mobility and women's rights to the city.

The Cidade Mulher Exhibition is on display at Hélio Oiticica Municipal Art Center, where it occupies four rooms with artistic interventions, installations and videos that address subjects such as women's participation in city planning, urban mobility, harassment and safety on public transport, women's right to a life without violence and decent housing, among others urgent agendas to build safe and accessible cities for all people.

“Women’s perspectives are fundamental to thinking about more accessible, inclusive and sustainable cities. Several experts, activists and artists are proposing solutions for our cities, and the Cidade Mulher Exhibition seeks to make their urban actions and interventions visible, which point the way to better cities for all people”, say Claudia Alencar, Juliana Câmara and Leonardo Bungarten, creators and exhibition producers.

The exhibition was conceived collectively, bringing together voices from the fields of architecture and urbanism, communication, social assistance, education, culture and the arts. With research by Renata Saavedra and collaboration with Clarisse Linke, Giordana Moreira, Hilda Gomes, Rafaela Albergaria and Tainá de Paula, the exhibition brings together testimonies from trans activist Bárbara Aires, Carolina Santos from Coletivo Inclusivas, art curator Isabel Portella, Val Munduruku , from the Suraras do Tapajós group, and several other activists and artists. The exhibition also features works by photographers Claudia Ferreira and Camila Kamillo and interventions by the collectives Deixa Ela em Paz, Vem pra Luta Amada, Facção Feminista Cineclube and AmoCrew.

The opening program, on September 16th, will feature DJ Bieta, a multimedia artist who moves through beats with African roots and Brazilian music; Slam das Minas, a poetic battle in search of women's artistic power; and Baque Mulher, a movement led by Mestra Joana, the first and only woman to lead the traditional Maracatu de Baque Virado rhythm.

Mediated by women, the exhibition is free and available for viewing from Monday to Saturday, from 10am to 18pm, until December 16th. The exhibition features audio description, subtitling and translation into Libras – the Brazilian Sign Language. There will also be music, dance and screen printing workshops, film club sessions and conversation circles throughout the exhibition, with a schedule to be announced soon.

Created by Festum, the exhibition is supported by the Culture Incentive Law / Ministry of Culture, Rio de Janeiro City Hall, Municipal Secretariat of Culture and Municipal Arts Center Hélio Oiticica and sponsored by Meta. The Cidade Mulher Exhibition is part of a platform on accessibility, mobility and diversity that also includes the Accessible City and Cidade 60+ exhibitions.
