February 5 – March 26, 2016

Opening reception: Friday, February 5, 6-8pm

Galerie Lelong
528 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001
 

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.

Ana Mendieta In ‘Between History And The Body’

From Forbes

7-29-2015

By Ann Binlot, Contributor

Cuban artist Ana Mendieta was a rising artist before she tragically jumped out of a window in her Greenwich Village apartment, falling 33 floors to her death following a fight with her husband, artist Carl André, in 1985. Since then, she has become a cult figure in the art world. A series of six self-portraits shot in 1972, titled “Untitled (Glass on Body Imprints)”, depicts Mendieta in a position that is both vulnerable and powerful as she presses a pane of glass against various body parts, including her butt, breasts and torso.

Ana Mendieta in Rome: interview with Raquel Cecilia

Studio International talks to film-maker Raquel Cecilia about documenting Ana Mendieta’s last creative years in Italy

by CINDI Di MARZO

Since Cuban American artist Ana Mendieta died in 1985 at the age of 36 in tragic and obscure circumstances, many efforts – including the seemingly definitive 2004 travelling exhibition Ana Mendieta: Earth Body, Sculpture and Performance 1972-1985 organised by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC – have been initiated to ensure her presence in contemporary art history and revisit critical appraisal of her work.

In 2013 alone, two retrospectives reminded visitors that Mendieta’s voice continues to resonate even after her death: Ana Mendieta. She Got Love at Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea in Turin followed by the Hayward Gallery’s Ana Mendieta: Traces in London. Apart from her haunting, experimental earth-body works, sculptures, films and photographs, Mendieta has become a symbol for many people who draw strength from her fearless dialogue with their concerns: gender bias in the arts; violence against women globally; racial discrimination; personal and cultural alienation; and the enduring ability of nature – in Mendieta’s view a benevolent feminine power celebrated in matriarchal societies and primitive religions – to restore and heal the soul.

Cuban Americans – Our America: The Latino Presence In American Art – Smithsonian Museum

October 25, 2013 – March 2, 2013

 

American Art Museum
8th And F Street NW
Washington DC
 

An exhibition opening next month at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, “Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art,” will highlight a chapter of art history that remains a secret to far too many Americans.

Since joining the Smithsonian in 2010, E. Carmen Ramos, the curator of Latino art at the American Art Museum, has had an ambitious mandate: to strengthen our holdings of Latino art and present that collection in a fresh way. “Our America,” which she curated, will display the results of that quest so far. It will include 92 works (by 72 artists), fully 63 of which have been acquired since 2011.

This exhibit is well represented by Cuban American Artists including Luis Cruz Azaceta, Maria Brito, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Teresita Fernandez, Ana Mendieta, Abelardo Morell, Maria Martinez-Cañas, Arturo Rodriguez, Emilio Sanchez, and Rafael Soriano.

Ana Mendieta Retrospective – London

24 September  – 15 December  2013

 

Southbank Centre,
Belvedere Rd
London, UK
 

This autumn The Hayward Gallery presents Ana Mendieta: Traces, the UK’s first retrospective of one of the most significant yet under-acknowledged artists of the late 20th century. In addition to films, sculptures, photographs, drawings, personal writings and notebooks, an extensive research room with hundreds of photographic slides unique access to works Ana Mendieta could never show during her short life.

The exhibition at Hayward Gallery, the first in a UK public institution solely devoted to the artist, will show the full breadth of Ana Mendieta’s work. Mendieta was part of a generation of innovative artists whose work no longer fitted the conventions of exhibition making and collecting art. Covering her entire career, and revealing different facets of her unique practice, this timely exhibition will position Mendieta as an influential figure from art history, reveal the creative mind of the artist, and convey the legacy of her work as well as its relevance for artists today.

Ana Mendieta in London

September 24 – December 15, 2013

 

Hayward Gallery
Southbank Centre
Belveder Rd
London

Using her own body, together with elemental materials such as blood, fire, earth and water, Ana Mendieta creates visceral performances and ephemeral ‘earth-body’ sculptures that combine ritual with metaphors about life, death, rebirth and spiritual transformation. ‘I wanted my images to have power, to be magic,’ she said. ‘I decided that for the images to have magic qualities I had to work directly with nature.’
