She - Mary in contemporary art is the exhibition on the Virgin Mary that the space O_LUMEN will be open from December 8 until January 20, 2023.

This exhibition, promoted by the delegation of Faith and Culture of the Archdiocese of Toledo and its delegate, Pilar Gordillo, was exhibited to the public for the first time in the spring of 2022, in the exhibition hall of the Archbishopric of Toledo with an impressive reception by the public.

The exhibition, focused on the figure of the Virgin Mary in contemporary art, consists of more than 40 works of great stylistic and technical diversity. Among these works are some that have been created expressly for this exhibition. Along with them, others, also of recent creation, have been summoned for their importance in the national panorama of current sacred art.

The museographic narrative is divided into major iconographic themes: Mary, woman of hope; Mary with the child Jesus in her arms; Mary in the passion of Jesus. Contemporary art at the service of thought, emotion and the demands of meaning.
