Hammer Museum will bring to light the extraordinary contributions of women artists from Latin America Latina and Chicana descent in the United States working between 1960 and the mid-1980s.


During this key period, women of the region produced pioneering artworks that, in many cases, were realized in harsh political and social conditions. The exhibition will feature works in a range of media, including photography, video, and installation. Among the women included are emblematic figures such as Lygia Clark and Ana Mendieta, alongside lesser-known artists such as the Colombian sculptor Feliza Bursztyn and the U.S.-based photographer Isabel Castro. With an expanded view of Latin America that includes Latina and Chicana artists working in the U.S., Radical Women will explore how the different social, cultural, and political contexts in which these artists worked informed their practices. Featuring works by more than 100 artists from 15 countries, Radical Women will constitute the first genealogy of feminist and radical women's art practices in Latin America and their influence internationally.
