      Join us for a special panel discussion featuring scholars and experts in Latin American art, feminism, and media ecologies as they present three innovative new readings of Marta Minujín’s legendary installation La Menesunda. Since its first installation at the Center for Visual Arts at the Instituto Torcuato di Tella in Buenos Aires in 1965, La Menesunda has only been recreated twice, the most recent iteration being the current New Museum exhibition, “Marta Minujín: Menesunda Reloaded.” Taking advantage of this unique opportunity, the scholars gathered together for this program will bring their expertise to bear on “Menesunda Reloaded” and provide exciting new interpretations of Minujín’s radical immersive installation and performance work.

      This panel will feature Dr. Deborah Cullen, Executive Director of the Bronx Museum of the Arts; Dr. Michaëla de Lacaze Mohrmann, Andrew W. Mellon Museum Research Consortium Fellow at the Museum of Modern Art; and Aimé Iglesias Lukin, PhD Candidate in Art History at Rutgers University and author of the exhibition catalogue essay “MINUYORK: Marta Minujín in the USA.” Their presentations on the history and significance of La Menesunda in relationship to gender, capitalism, and transnational exchange in Latin American art will be followed by a discussion moderated by Massimiliano Gioni, the New Museum’s Edlis Neeson Artistic Director and co-curator of “Menesunda Reloaded.”Sponsors
