The contributions of Latin American and Latina women to contemporary art are documented here through the conceptual and radical works of more than 120 pioneering artists, including Lygia Pape, Ana Mendieta, Margarita Paksa, and Feliza Bursztyn. Ranging from sculpture to photography to performance, these pieces highlight the use of the female body for artistic expression, activism, and social critique.
