Ana Mendieta: On the Body and Landscape
Ana Mendieta is widely regarded as among the most original and talented artists of the postwar era. She produced a stunning body of work that drew together the most important innovations of her moment, including land art, film, performance, and intersectional feminism, and presciently foregrounded issues of identity, translocations, and ecology. In this special program, for the first time, all Smithsonian holdings of her films will be shown together. Time-based media art curators at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, National Portrait Gallery, and Smithsonian American Art Museum will then discuss her engagement with natural and social environments with Raquel Cecilia, Mendieta’s niece, Estate director and director of a documentary on the artist’s life, Rebel by Nature: The Life & Art of Ana Mendieta.

This program is part of Viewfinder: Women’s Film and Video from the Smithsonian, a monthly virtual film screening and conversation series sponsored by the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative, Because of Her Story. This second half of the series showcases creative responses to the external forces that shape the way we move through and experience the world. Visit WomensHistory.si.edu for more information about upcoming events in this screening series.
