Who is Ana Mendieta?

This debut exhibition in our latest gallery space showcases original drawings from the book Who is Ana Mendieta? by Christine Redfern and Caro Caron; published by The Feminist Press.

This gripping graphic novel richly documents the tragically brief life of artist Ana Mendieta (18/11/1948 - 08/09/1985), her violent death and its aftermath.

Starting in 1973, producing close to eighty films during her career, she is one of the most prolific filmmakers of her generation and a pioneer of the video art genre. She was also brown-skinned, female and an immigrant. Coming of age in the United States at the height of the feminist revolution and civil rights movement - everything, including equality, must have seemed impossible.

In 1985, Mendieta married well-known Minimalist sculptor Carl Andre. Less than eight months later, already planning to divorce him, she plunged from the 34th floor window of his Greenwich Village apartment.
