The legend of Antigone represents conflicts between men and women, the individual and society as well confrontations between citizens and the state. Elena Sims (b. Madrid, Spain, 1940) explores Sophocles's tragedy to reflect upon the theme of intransigence. Antigone at Galería Juana de Aizpuru serves as a call to dialogue and respect in these troubled times.
