Cuban-born Ana Mendieta died in 1985, bringing a prolific 15-year career to a sudden end. She spent time at the American Academy in Rome near the end of her life, and the show focuses on that period and the four years before her residency. By this time Mendieta had moved away from the body art and performance work that she focused on in the ’70s toward more permanent types of art-making like drawings on leaves and paper, photographs of outdoor sculpture/carvings, sculptures made of roots, ferns and mud, and two black-and-white films.
