This seminar provides an overview of women artists in Central and South America through the lens of the acclaimed exhibition titled Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960–1985.

This conversation explores works by a number of female artists included in the exhibition Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960–1985., which was shown at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the Brooklyn Museum in New York, and the Pinacoteca de São Paulo in Brazil. Touching on artists based in 15 countries, this seminar will explore works that were radical not only for their form but also for their content, embodying feminist and other progressive ideologies that often constituted resistance to authoritarianism and otherwise oppressive regimes and their legacies. Artists to be discussed will include, amongst others, Lygia Clark, Marisol, Ana Mendieta, Marta Minujín, Lygia Pape, Liliana Porter, Regina Silveira, and Cecilia Vicuña.

Led by an expert on modern and contemporary art, Dr. Jennie Hirsh, this interactive seminar will introduce participants to well-known as well as lesser-studied female artists in countries throughout Central and South America as well as Latina artists based in the U.S. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased knowledge of innovative and avant-garde women artists from the 1960s to the present.

She has held postdoctoral fellowships at Princeton and Columbia Universities, as well as pre-doctoral fellowships from the Mrs. Giles Whiting Foundation, the U.S. Fulbright commission, the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, and the Wolfsonian FIU.
