The work of the influential Cuban-American artist Ana Mendieta is reassessed and presented in all of its many facets in this volume.

This major monograph, a comprehensive reconsideration of the brief life and career of Ana Mendieta (1948-85), contextualizes the artist's work within its time and acknowledges her legacy on subsequent generations of artists. The Cuban-born American sculptor is celebrated for her earth-body works of the 1970s, sculptural interventions in the landscape that placed her body - or its haunting silhouette - in symbiotic relationship with nature. Showing extracts from her films, original slide documentation, photography, and other archival material, the catalog illustrates early performances from Mendieta's student days, as well as her more well-known Silueta Series made in Iowa and Mexico from 1973 to 1980. Earth-body works excecuted in Canada, Cuba, and the United States in the early 1980s and select sculptures, drawings, and installations dating to the mid-eighties will also be illustrated. Organized by Olga M. Viso, the Hirshhorn's Deputy Director, the book will be the definitive study of the artist's work.
