Ana Mendieta as a Cultural Connector with Cuba
Resumen: The work of Ana Mendieta encompasses the full range of avant-garde 1970s movements- conceptual, performance, earthwork, feminist and identity art- yet it is profundly Cuban as well. Much of Mendieta's output involved negotiating and trascending boundaries, some of the result of geographic displacement, others imposed by an art world that still categorized work by gender, ethnicity, media, First World versus Third World, and as high or low art. While her work draws aesthetically from both North American and Cuban sources, Mendieta networked tirelessly to connect artists from the two regions on an individual basis.
