Pair your favorite drink with a lively and informative 30-minute conversation on two works of art by Ana Mendieta and David Hammons who both reference the body and its many personal and cultural meanings.
Ana Mendieta was a Cuban-American artist who created a series of work called Siluetas (silhouettes) that recorded the impressions or physical presence of her body in various forms, including site-specific works.
David Hammons is a Black artist who creates body prints by smearing grease and pressing his body against paper to create haunting imprints. The Drawing Center (NYC) is currently showing his work in the exhibition “David Hammons: Body Prints, 1968-1979.”
Two educators, Angela Garcia and Maya Jeffereis, will guide participants in looking closely at these two works of art and dive deep into conversation. Come open to sharing your responses to the works, learning something you perhaps didn’t know, and meaningfully connecting with others.
Angela Garcia is an independent art historian and educator with 20 years of experience creating and leading engaging experiences and conversations with art. She has lectured and facilitated conversations at The Museum of Modern Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, El Museo del Barrio, Morris Jumel Mansion among other academic, and cultural institutions.
Maya Jeffereis is a Brooklyn-based artist, educator, and museum consultant with 15 years of experience working in the arts. She believes art offers us the opportunity to deeply know ourselves, to think critically about the world around us, and to meaningfully connect with others. Maya has taught at The Museum of Modern Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The Shed, and Hunter College, among other institutions.
