The target group of the Exhibition are music lovers, professionals and students. The knowledge about female composers is not very wide spread. This urged the musicologist Irene Suchy and the stage designer Clarisse Maylunas to bring light in to this topic
The key visual was meant to envision the female artist stepping out from the shadow of their male colleagues into public perception. To emphasize this Irene Suchy and Aleka Zichy created the claim “from shadow into light”
The media and the general public reaction were very positive and Musica Femina will be travelling. For this purpose, the design is adaptable in every venue as less abundant show.
