The Hammer Museum presents Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960‐1985, a groundbreaking exhibition that will constitute the first history of experimental art practices in Latin America by women artists and their influence internationally. Addressing an art historical vacuum, Radical Women will give visibility to the artistic practices of women artists working in Latin America and US‐born Chicanas and Latinas between 1960 and 1985—a key period in Latin American history and in the development of contemporary art. Fifteen countries will be represented in the exhibition by 116 artists, with more than 260 works in photography, video, and other experimental mediums. Among the women included are emblematic figures such as Lygia PapeAna Mendieta, and Marta Minujínalongside lesser‐known names such as the Cuban‐born abstract artist Zilia Sánchez, the Colombian sculptor Feliza Burztyn, the New York‐born Puerto Rican photographer Sophie Rivera, and the Argentine mixed‐media artist Margarita Paksa. The exhibition is guest curated by Dr. Cecilia Fajardo‐Hill and Dr. Andrea Giunta as part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.
