An excellent catalogue on the works of Mendieta. Published on the occasion of the 1996 exhibition Ana Mendieta, curated by Gloria Moure, at the Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea (traveled to Kunsthalle, Düsseldorf, Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Barcelona, Miami Art Museum of Dade County, Miami, Florida and The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles). From the text by Ana Mendieta: "I don't think you can separate death and life. All of my work is about those two things. . . it's about Eros and life/death." From the publisher: "This monograph on the Cuban-born artist Ana Mendieta provides the most comprehensive overview of her career available in English. From her early performances to her Land Art works, sculptures, and drawings, examples from all phases of her career--from the late 1960s to her death in 1985-- are considered here in extensive color plates, several in-depth essays, and writings by the artist."
