We've added over 80 images to MDID of pieces by Cuban-born and American-raised Ana Mendieta, who described her work as "earth-body" art - combining performance and film with sculpture and land. A truly amazing and pioneering artist, who died tragically and all too soon, Mendieta has a remarkable life story that we urge you to explore if you haven't done so already. Below are just a few of the books we have on the artist in the library:
"Unseen Mendieta: the Unpublished Works of Ana Mendieta" (Prestel, 2008)
"Traces: Ana Mendieta" (Hayward Publishing, 2013)
"Ana Mendieta: Earth Body: Sculpture and Performance 1972-1985" (Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, 2004)
"Where Is Ana Mendieta?: Identity, Performativity, and Exile" (Duke University Press, 1999)
Not to mention we have a DVD of selected film works by Mendieta (New York : Electronic Arts Intermix, 2000) and so much more...
