Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960–1985 gives visibility to female artists who worked in Latin America and those born in the USA of Latino heritage and the artistic practices they employed between 1960 and 1985—a key period in Latin American history and in the development of contemporary art. Fifteen countries will be represented in the exhibition by over 100 artists, with 260 works based on photography, video, and other experimental mediums. Among the women included are iconic 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. The artists featured in Radical Women have made extraordinary contributions to the field of contemporary art, but little scholarly attention has been devoted to situating their work within the social, cultural, and political contexts in which it was made.
