Radical women:
latin american art

The catalogue of the exhibition Mulheres Radicais: arte latino-americana,1960-1975, curated by British Venezuelan art historian and curator Cecilia Fajardo-Hill and Italian Argentine researcher Andrea Giunta presents a great research about women artists from Latin America from the 60's and the 70's. It is considered the first show in history to bring an extensive and notable mapping of the experimental artistic practices by Latin women artists and their influence on international art production. A super complete oeuvre with biographical information of the artists followed by images of the works from the show. (GB)

"Exceptionally, the issue of race was introduced as a tough conscience: in one of her performances, Peruvian artist Victoria Santa Cruz screams "black!" and "I am black woman!", as a challenging way of naming Afro-Latin Americans and their experience. This work makes visible the process that expels people categorized as not having what is considered the right skin color."
