Rose Video Gallery

Rose Video 10 presents Ana Mendieta's powerful short film Sweating Blood (1973), one of the artist’s early experiments with performance for the camera. A pioneer among artists dealing with identity politics and feminism, the Cuban-American Mendieta (1948-1985) created groundbreaking work in photography, performance, film, video, drawing, sculpture and site-specific installation. For this special presentation at the Rose, Mendieta’s film will be shown alongside Body Tracks (1982), the rare triptych of her body prints made as part of a performance at Franklin Furnace, New York, and now part of the Rose Collection.
