Silueta des flores

Ana Mendieta
Thankfully VAWA was reauthorized a few days ago. Perhaps Ms. Mendieta would have been still making art today if VAWA had been around in 1985. Although her husband was acquitted of any charges surrounding her death (she fell/jumped/was thrown from her apartment balcony) their relationship was rather violent. Of Mendieta's supporters, a chunk of the (misogynist) art community called them the rabid "feminist cabal." Hmmm, asking to be treated with dignity, equity and respect makes one a conniving plotter?
