DESCRIPTION

Regina Galindo is one of the most predominant female artists working in performance today. Galindo uses her body to create powerful visual metaphors that criticize different aspects of society. Since the nineties, Galindo’s work has addressed social and political issues in the Americas. She draws attention to these issues by inflicting or mimicking direct, physical violence on her body and often places herself and the viewer into difficult psychological situations, recalling the political and poetic gestures of emblematic female performance artists such as Ana Mendieta. This exhibition will be composed by documentary objects, including photographs and videos, of the most significant performances by Regina Galindo. The opening events will include performances specifically created for MOLAA by the artist.
