Faculty, staff, and students are invited to attend Professor Micol Hebron’s public walk-through of the “Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960-1985” exhibition at the Hammer Museum on Tuesday, Nov. 7 at 6 p.m. Admission is free.
Part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, this exhibition will reappraise the contribution of Latin American women artists and those of Latino and Chicano heritage in the United States to contemporary art. The exhibition includes 260 works in photography, video, and other experimental mediums. Among the women included are emblematic figures such as Lygia Clark, Ana Mendieta, and Marta Minujín alongside lesser-known names such as the Cuban-born abstract artist Zilia Sánchez, the Colombian sculptor Feliza Bursztyn, and the Brazilian video artist Leticia Parente. Professor Hebron, whose research and background is rooted in radical feminist performance and social practice, has been invited to talk about the works in the exhibition that inspire and provoke her. Please encourage your students to attend this historic exhibition and walk-through!
