Ana Mendieta: Documents of a Life in Art is a companion exhibition to the Nash Gallery exhibit covering the life and artistic career of Cuban native, Ana Mendieta, Covered in Time and History: The Films of Ana Mendieta. Ana Mendieta’s particular merging of sculpture, earth art and performance (Earth Body, as she termed it) stands as a unique and singular artistic expression. Her work crossed many borders including artistic and time-based disciplines; geographical and political boundaries; and the investigations of history, gender and culture.
The exhibitions are co-sponsored by the Department of Art, the Department of Art History, the Department of Chicano and Latino Studies, the Department of Gender, Women’s and Sexuality Studies, the Department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies, the Institute of Global Studies, the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs, the University Libraries, and presented in collaboration with the Consulate of México.
Curated by Elise Armani, BFA student in the Dept of Art and Gender, Women and Sexuality Studies in consultation with Deborah Ultan Boudewyns, the Arts & Architecture Librarian
