Additional Information

What does it mean to be a radical woman artist? How did Latin American women artists and Latinas working in the United States between 1960 and 1985 defy dominant patriarchal narratives through new perceptions of the body? What is the relationship between Latina and Latin American art practices and political feminisms?

In this daylong symposium, scholars, artists, and curators from around the world convene to consider the idea of the political body in conjunction with the exhibition Radical Women: Latin American, 1960-1985, on view at the Hammer from September 15–December 31, 2017.

This symposium will be bilingual in Spanish and English.
