A discussion of the life and work of experimental artist Ana Mendieta, part of Literature Autumn Season 2013.
Ana Mendieta (1948-1985) was a powerful artist whose themes include feminism, land art, life, death, identity, site and belonging.
With the Hayward Gallery devoting a major retrospective to Mendieta's ground-breaking practice, we host a discussion about her life, iconoclastic art works and legacy featuring leading critic Adrian Heathfield, the exhibition's curator Stephanie Rosenthal, and the artist's sister Raquelín Mendieta.
