Ana Mendieta's emotional ties

21 March 2019

In conjunction with an exhibition of work by Cuban American artist Ana Mendieta at the IMA, guest curator Professor Susan Best presented a talk titled Ana Mendieta’s emotional ties. Best’s talk centred on the Silueta series—considered Mendieta’s most important work—and considered the artist’s ideas about an emotional connection to the earth.
