Manuela-Saenz

 

MUJERES VALIENTES,

They reel viewers in, hold them tenderly by the collar, and do not let go until the final jam session.”

—Eye on Dance

For its anniversary season, Flamenco Vivo presents the premiere of a new work by flamenco legend Belén Maya. Mujeres Valientes explores the fundamental power and courage of two trailblazing women who challenged authorities and fought against ignorance, inequality, and injustice: 17th-century Mexican poet and philosopher Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz and 19th-century activist and South American revolutionary Manuela Sáenz.

In the second half of the program, José Maldonado and Guadalupe Torres present new solos, giving audiences an opportunity to witness the kind of electrifying dancing that has won the prizes in Spain. The program features Flamenco Vivo’s international company of eight dancers and five musicians, with all works performed to live music.

ana-mendieta

Ana Mendieta

Artista latina y feminista que cuestionaba los estereotipos de género y la relación con la Naturaleza.

Contenido original por Prominent Hispanics

Ana Mendieta nació en la Habana, Cuba en el año 1948. En 1961, Ana y su hermana mayor se exiliaron a Estados Unidos sin sus padres. Ellas vinieron a Estados Unidos como parte de la Operation Peter Pan, un programa de la Iglesia Católica estadounidense que trajeron a catorce miles de niños cubanos a los Estados Unidos en un esfuerzo para ‘salvar’ a los niños del régimen anti-católico de Castro (Perreault). En Estados Unidos, Mendieta vivía con una familia adoptiva en Iowa y no volvió a ver a sus padres por muchos años. Obviamente, esta experiencia dolorosa, impactó mucho a la formación de Mendieta y su obra refleja esta experiencia.

ana-mendieta-stone-women-512x512-c

Mendieta era una artista única cuya obra, en su mayor parte, consiste en performances, body art, videos, fotografías, dibujos, instalaciones y esculturas. Su carrera artística fue corta (1972-1985), pero muy productiva e intensa. Durante el principio de los años 70, asistió a la Universidad de Iowa como estudiante graduada de las artes. Empezó pintando obras expresionistas, pero sus intereses cambiaron con su integración al Intermedia Program and Center for New Performing Arts. En el mundo artístico de los setenta, utilizar el cuerpo para crear arte (“body art” o “performance art”) llegó a ser una manera popular para expresarse. Durante su carrera, Mendieta contribuyó al desarrollo de esta arte, y también hizo un gran impacto en el arte de la tierra (land art o earthworks) (Smithsonian).

Aida Miro presenta “De Ibiza a New York”

Contenido original por SER

La artista ibicenca Aída Miró expone del 17 de marzo al 13 de abril en la sala Art Lines Gallery de Nueva Jersey (Estados Unidos) su muestra ‘From Eivissa to New York’. Con un total de 45 pinturas, Miró quiere exhibir ‘el espíritu cosmopolita de Eivissa, su folclore, misticismo y espiritualidad’, además de su pasión por la música y la danza.

 

392d58575be70bccc445848518bdee5f

Los cuadros, pintados al óleo, muestran la evolución de su obra y contrastan los creados bajo el ritmo frenético de una gran urbe como Nueva York, donde su trabajo ha adquirido un toque más urbano, combinando el espray y el óleo. Algunas de las obras han sido creadas en acontecimientos de arte en vivo, durante actuaciones de músicos, disyóquey y bailarines.

Retratos de Frida Kalho, Basquiat, Michael Jackson, James Brown, Sade, Stevie Wonder o Bob Marley forman un conjunto de obras de un estilo más pop y urbano situado en la primera sala de la galería. Una segunda estancia contiene pinturas de mayor formato con retratos de diosas mitológicas, autorretratos bailando butoh o geishas, donde destacan unas labradoras emprendadas y “ball pagés”.

Nacida en Eivissa y residente en Nueva York, Aída Miró empezó a pintar en las calles a principios de los años 90. Miró es licenciada en Bellas artes en la Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, con un posgrado en Diseño Teatral de la Universidad de Bristol, en Reino Unido, y un doctorado en Educación Artística en la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. Su trabajo -fuertemente influenciado por la música y la danza- ha sido expuesto internacionalmente, en ciudades como París, México DF, Oaxaca, Nápoles, Hamburgo, Bristol, Nueva York, Barcelona o Madrid. El año pasado ganó la 15a edición del NYC Art Battle.

    Francisco de Goya will be our third painter reviewed at the Hispanic Society. Francisco de Goya was a Spanish romantic painter  regarded both as the last of the Old Masters and the first of the moderns.  Through his works he was both a commentator on and chronicler of his era. The rebellious imaginative element in his art model was pivotal for the work of artists of later generations such as Édouard Manet, Pablo Picasso and Francis Bacon. Cristina Domenech, Ph.D. Coordinator of Education & Public Programs at The Hispanic Society of America will introduce us to the museum, its foundation, architecture and collections. Jorge Gallegos of Easy Español will guide the group on a focused examination of Francisco de Goya.
