The Josefa Tolrà exhibition inaugurated in Mataró in December 2013 had more than four thousand visitors. Most were people separated from the world of contemporary art. The event was covered by the press and many felt interested in it. This data seemed to me revealing. We have placed their creations in spaces of art, the most institutional, but the reception and complicity overflow these territories and filter into multiple spaces of interest. Some of them did not want their works to come to light until long after their death, they knew that it was not the time yet. Emma Kunz predicted that her graphic creations were for the 21st century.
