the Rumpus: "Who Is Ana Mendieta?"

who-ana-mendieta

The Feminist Press has put together an extraordinary graphic biography in Who is Ana Mendieta? (June 2011) by Christine Redfern and Caro Varon.  The work intersects with the larger subject of the social revolution that did or didn't happen in the 60s and 70s.  Questions regarding Mendieta, her art, women's art, all art, politics and social change come crashing together in the elegant edition, which launches FP's Blind Spot Series,  The series, in the words of FP, will invoke “the spirit of revolutions past.”

Here's the piece I wrote for the Rumpus:
