Nearly three decades ago, we presented “Ana Mendieta: A Retrospective” (November 20 1987—January 24 1988) at our previous space at 583 Broadway. Mendieta uses her body as a medium for performances, earth art, body art, and photo art.
“I am overwhelmed by the feeling of having been cast from the womb (nature). My art is the way I re-establish the bonds that unite me to the universe. It is a return to the maternal source.” – Ana Mendieta
