Ana Mendieta: Experimental and Interactive Films is the first full-scale gallery exhibition dedicated to Mendieta’s filmworks in New York. Revealing aspects of Mendieta’s practice that are not as widely known as her ritualistic investigations of body and landscape, the exhibition demonstrates Mendieta’s technical innovations and her singular approach to the medium. The fifteen filmworks comprising the exhibition—nine of which have never been seen before—are newly transferred from their original media to digital formats. These transfers reveal detail and a vibrancy of color and contrast, while preserving these critical works for future generations.
