Join us for a screening of short films by influential Cuban-American artist Ana Mendieta (1948–1985), whose work is featured in the current exhibition On Earth.

Pulitzer Curatorial Assistant, Molly Moog will introduce Mendieta’s practice followed by a screening of five films: Sweating Blood, 1973; Burial Pyramid, 1974; Creek, 1974; Butterfly, 1975; and Anima, Silueta de Cohetes (Firework Piece), 1976.
