In Italy, Castello di Rivoli presents “Ana Mendieta: She Got Love,” the first large European retrospective dedicated to the Cuban artist. This exhibition coincides with the world premiere of “Itali-Ana, Mendieta in Rome,” a documentary film on Ana Mendieta’s work during her residence at the American Academy in Rome. The exhibition opened on January 30 and will be on view until May 5, 2013 at the Castello di Rivoli in Turin (Torino), Italy.
A pioneer in video, performance and body art, Ms. Mendieta has developed a distinct visual language that embraces both a mystical and a political sensitivity. The film will be screened at the museum for the duration of the exhibition.
