“The major monograph, a comprehensive reconsideration of the brief life and career of Ana Mendieta (1948-85), contextualizes the artist’s work within its time and acknowledges her legacy on subsequent generations of artists. The Cuban-born American sculptor is celebrated for her earth-body works of the 1970s, sculptural interventions in the landscape that placed her body – or its haunting silhouette – in symbiotic relationship with nature. Showing extracts from her films, original slide documentation, photography, and other archival material, the catalog illustrates early performances from Mendieta’s student days, as well as her more well-known Silueta Series made in Iowa and Mexico from 1973 to 1980. Earth-body works excecuted in Canada, Cuba, and the United States in the early 1980s and select sculptures, drawings, and installations dating to the mid-eighties. Organized by Olga M. Viso, – The definitive study of the artist’s work”

“Re: Colonised Planet 5, Shikasta” tells the secret history of Earth from the perspective of the advanced Canopus civilisation that is thinking in eons rather than centuries. The history spans from the very beginning of life into a future World War Three. It includes the trial of all Europeans for the crimes of colonialism, “The Marriages Between Zones Three, Four and Five” depicts the influence of unknown higher powers on interactions between a series of civilizational “zones” of varying degrees of advancement that encircle the planet Earth. One zone is representative of an overtly feminine high civilisation initially coupled by royal marriage to a militant and male civilisation. The novel culminates with the latter, male, civilisation allying with a tribal female realm again following directives from Canopus, and “The Sirian Experiments ” focuses, like Shikasta, on the history of Earth, but from the perspective of visitors from Sirius rather than Canopus. The Sirians are depicted as a highly managed society, with fascist overtones, that attempts experiments on lesser civilisations while trying to mitigate the stagnation of their ruling class. The story is told from the perspective of Ambien II, one of a peer group of five who rule Sirius”
