Exiled from Cuba to the United States in 1961, artist filmmaker Ana Mendieta (b.1948) never forgot the ache of leaving her home, family and native soil. Running through her Super 8, 16mm and video work, this theme of displacement speaks directly to Harvard Art Museums’ current exhibition Doris Salcedo: The Materiality of Mourning.
The David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard (DRCLAS), Harvard Art Museums, and the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts present an evening of Mendieta's striking work. See full details here.
DRCLAS will also present a panel discussion about Mendieta with Professor Carrie Lambert and installation artist Tania Bruguera on Monday, February 6 at 5:30pm at DRCLAS: CGIS South, 1730 Cambridge Street, Belfer Case Study Room.
