WONDER WOMAN, THE ORIGIN OF A SUPER-HEROINE // WHAT SHE REPRESENTS:
Icon of feminism, emblem of pop culture, princess of the Amazons, Diana Prince alias Wonder Woman! For more than 80 years, this superheroine has established herself in our collective imagination as the female counterpart of Superman. Secret identity, superpower and omnipotence, Wonder Woman is multi-faceted and she won't stop surprising you !
ITS ORIGINS: Created in 1941 by William Moulton Marston, Wonder Woman made her first appearance in the 8th issue of ALL STAR COMICS magazine, originally from the American publishing house DC Comics (Detective Comics). During its creation, the super heroine will be carried by the feminist emancipation struggles of this time. During World War II, the Amazon princess was above all a symbol of emancipation for women's rights until the early 1950s marked by a return to pre-war norms.
WHAT SHE REPRESENTS: Today Wonder Woman is first and foremost a model of independence for women. Since its creation, she has been carried from generation to generation as the standard bearer of many values of peace, emancipation, and social progress. A fight that the super heroine and so many others continue to lead even today more than 80 years after its creation with feminist struggles, the #MeTOO or even LGBT struggles.
EXHIBITION CONTEXT: As powerful as Heracles, as strategic as Athena and… let's say it! As beautiful as Aphrodite! Come and discover Wonder Woman at the center of the next POP ART exhibition organized by CORPS ET AME GALLERY, WONDER WOMAN IN ALL HER STATES. 10 artists will be gathered to present their interpretation of this emblematic figure of American Comics. In the guise of DILLON BOY / DENIAL / MR LIVE / Z VIDAL / ELMAGO / THIERRY BEAUDENON / KEDAR ONE / LÉON GREG GUILLEMIN / SANDRA CHEVRIER & SOCRATE let yourself be surprised by the sulfurous Princess Amazon.
