Intimate Lives

Work by Ten Contemporary Latina Artists
Thu Sep 30, 1993 - Sun Nov 7, 1993

Curated by Kathy Vargas, Visual Art Director at the Guadalupe Cultural Art Center, the exhibition included work by New York artists Kukuli Velarde, Inverna Lockpez, and Adriana Robles; Austin artists Connie Arismendi, Liliana Wilson, and Regina Vater; Miami artists Maria Brito and Marie Castheliola; San Francisco artist Esther Hernandez; and Puerto Rico artist Frieda Medin.

In bringing together artists of Cuban, Puerto Rican, Mexican, and South American descent, this exhibition sought to more fully explore what is often more loosely referred to as Hispanic art. Furthermore, by focusing on women artists, this exhibition sought to present and define an aesthetic that had not been well documented or critically assessed. While there had been exhibitions devoted to Hispanic art, there had been little attention devoted to women artists, particularly women artists representing such a broad spectrum of Latin American art.
