On the 8th of September, 1985, Cuban-American performance and multi-media artist Ana Mendieta fell naked from the window of her 34th floor apartment. The fatal fall occurred in the presence of her then husband, minimalist sculptor Carl Andre, who was subsequently charged with her murder. Despite evidence, including Mendieta’s acute fear of heights, which would have presumably kept her at a distance from the apartment’s large sliding glass windows, and witness statements claiming they heard an...

New Mexico enjoys—or sometimes suffers from—a number of artworld stereotypes and iconic images. This is a good thing, as it draws many people to this very special, out-of-the way place. But images of western landscapes and traditional Native American pottery looms so large in popular consciousness, that the whole other-world of contemporary artists working in Santa Fe, and the Southwest in general, can be overshadowed or obscured completely. This is not at all to diminish the value of these... [more]

Provocative but not Belligerant   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Ana Mendieta at Galerie Lelong - Paris September 8th, 2011 - October 8th, 2011
Posted 9/19/11
This long awaited exhibition of Ana Mendieta’s work in Paris, appropriately titled Blood and Fire, divides Mendieta’s early and late work into the two halves, two rooms at Galerie Lelong. The interpretation of Mendieta’s works are always up for grabs because they carry an obscurity and an ambiguity that open them out to an address of so much more than what is actually represented. Mendieta’s work is always provocative but never belligerent, thus carrying with it a wealth of possible... [more]

“Interventions in the Landscape,” the group exhibition at Galerie Lelong, is an examination of the rather acrimonious relationship humans have with the natural world.  Documenting their creations, performances, and investigations through the uses of photography and film, seventeen artists expose the social, political, and emotional implications man-made actions have on our surroundings. In each of the works, made between 1968 and 2010, not only has a human presence been unceremoniously forced... [more]
