Day 1 / homework


My project for Rebuilding the portfolio is based upon my experience as a graduate student dealing with an uncommon subject for Argentine art historians: the careers of women artists in Buenos Aires between 1880 and 1920. There’s little trustworthy information on the large group of active women artists and their stories are little-known. My aim is to create a database with biographies of these remarkable women, allowing visitors to comment/correct the information available. I would like each biography to have a set of tags that connects the data and makes it easy to see unforeseen links (for example, the school they attended, the places the exhibited at, the genres they worked on).
