Abstract : Colombia began its democratic transition during the period of the National Front (1958-1974), where a jo political administration agreement between the main political parties, the Liberal Party and the Conservati Party, was set up. This alliance was endorsed by implementation of female suffrage and execution of t modernization project intending to get the country out of poverty. This context favored t internationalization of Colombian art and the visibility of women artists' works. 1958-1977 was a turni point: women went to University in their masses and entered the labor market, while simultaneou guerrilla groups emerged, and the military power spread over the country. Although women's stat improved, it was also weakened by this political conjuncture. The main purpose of this thesis is understand how the political transition and the social modernization stimulated women's integration into t Colombian art world. Based on unpublished archives and interviews with the protagonists of the local artis panorama, this thesis aims to prove that women have contributed to Colombia's art modernization innovating in artistic creation, by promoting crafts, by valorizing private sphere and household objects, a by empowering the female body. The journey to artistic modernity embraced the quest for women artis identity. Travelling was one of the main channels to nourish their search. Opting for an interdisciplinary a comparative approach, this thesis suggests a gendered analysis of the Colombian art construction within political and social pivotal transitional period.
