In celebration of the opening of Radical Women: Latin American Art, Mexican artist-activist Mónica Mayer will re-stage a 1978 performance at the Hammer Museum from Friday, September 15 to Monday, September 18. With the help of local students, the artist will invite museum visitors to answer questions related to women’s bodies and experiences with sexual harassment. These answers will be written on pink notecards and hung on a pink clothesline, a physical structure alluding to women’s domestic labor.
Student participants will be paid between $50 and $65 per 4-5 hour shift. If you would like to sign up, please email your availability to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This performance is organized in conjunction with Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960–1985, an upcoming exhibition giving unprecedented visibility to the artistic practices of Latina and Latin American women who worked during a key period in both Latin American and contemporary art history.
