The exhibition Pánico no museo (Panic at the museum) by the artist María Meijide is part of the Artist in Residence programme, which this year celebrates its sixth edition. In this project, the artists have a space at the Foundation's headquarters to work and create. María Meijide's exhibition takes the form of a large expanded diary. A furious and joyful painting that invites us to the present. More than twenty pieces, almost all acrylic painting with some photoengraving, make up a collection that seems to connect with reality through a hedonistic and intimate gaze.
María Meijide is a consolidated artist on the Galician scene and also recognised outside the country, with a solid trajectory of national and international exhibitions. In addition, her work includes numerous publications of travel notebooks: Galipop, un caderno de hoxe e de sempre (2020), De Ushuaia a Quiaca (Librería Lila, Santiago de Compostela 2017), De Kuala Lumpur a Beijing (CGAC, Santiago de Compostela 2015), among others.
In 2014 he edited an emotional cartography of Compostela presented at the Fundación Granell, which is now a classic. Among the recent merits of his career is the first 'Jesús Núñez' Graphic Art Prize, XVI edition, A Coruña, 2021.
For some years now, and after many trips, María Meijide has been living in her native city and developing her work in Galicia, based in the centre of the historic centre of Compostela, in a workshop that can be visited in the Plaza del Toural.
