It doesn’t happen often but when it does, you know the universe is making a connection.
That’s exactly what I thought when I learned Argentinian artist, Marta Minujin’s latest exhibit – Menesuda Reloaded – will be featured at the New Museum in New York City in June 2019.
Coincidentally, WomanScape writer Alexandria Meinecke was passionate about sharing an article about the work of Marta for this month’s theme “Female artists changing the world”. I hadn’t heard of Marta but jumped at the opportunity given Marta’s lifelong mission to define art as a living, ever-changing and dynamic process.
Marta’s work is the kind of out-of-the-box thinking we need in the world. She challenges social conventions and political ideas surrounding art, believing it is for everyone and a continuum of creativity defying conventional ideas about it.
In pure, Hemingway-esque style, Marta creates and destroys her moveable feasts of art installations. She is arguably one of Argentina’s greatest creatives and her work has the same booming effect as Andy Warhol’s did in the 1960s.
According to the New Museum, “Over the past sixty years, the epoch-defining Argentinian artist Marta Minujín (b. 1943, Buenos Aires, Argentina) has developed happenings, performances, installations, and video works that have greatly influenced generations of contemporary artists in Latin America and beyond.”
