Join the AFA for a before hours tour of Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960-1985 with Catherine Morris, Sackler Senior Curator for the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, and recent AFA Spring Luncheon speaker.
This is the first exhibition to explore the groundbreaking contributions to contemporary art made by Latin American and Latina women artists during a period of conceptual and aesthetic experimentation. Featuring 123 artists from 15 countries, Radical Women focuses on their use of the female body for political and social critique and artistic expression.
The artworks on view range from painting and sculpture to photography, video, and performance by artists such as Lygia Pape, Ana Mendieta, and Marta Minujín, alongside lesser‐known names such as Cuban‐born abstract painter Zilia Sánchez; Colombian sculptor Feliza Bursztyn; Peruvian composer, choreographer, and activist Victoria Santa Cruz; and Argentine mixed‐media artist Margarita Paksa.
