Join art muse and contemporary artist Julie Weitz for a guided walkthrough of the Hammer Museum's critically-acclaimed and groundbreaking exhibit, Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960–1985. Radical Women spotlights the work of over one hundred Latin American and Latino artists working between 1960 and 1985, a critical time in both Latin American history and contemporary art at large. This expansive exhibits features longtime luminaries—among them Ana Mendieta, Lygia Clark, and Marta Minujín—as well as emerging artistis like Zilia Sánchez, Feliza Bursztyn, and Leticia Parente. In a way that no other exhibit has done before, Radical Women contexualizes these artists' practices within the rich and complex history of Latin America, thus constituting the first comprehensive account of radical and/or feminist art practices in the region.
"Radical Women...is the kind of show that art critics live for," raves Ben Davis of Artnet. "[This] is the single most exciting and hope-inspiring historical group show of contemporary art I’ve seen in 10 years," said Holland Cotter in the NY Times.
Radical Women is supported by a grant from the Getty Foundation, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA. From September 2017 through January 2018, over 70 cultural institutions across Southern California will examine the Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. And Art Muse LA will feature a number of these exhibitions this fall.
