Since the beginning of video-art in the sixties, women had been playing a leading role in its history. Women artists were pioneers in this realm from the very beginning, defying a trending male-centric vision of art history.
Pioneer Latin American women who were exploring performance art as an exciting field of exploration, adopted new technologies to go forward in their artistic creations. Today, we honor them for their trailblazing legacy, which opened infinite doors to contemporary artists.
Some of these artists in Latin America are Nela Ochoa and Any Villanueva, among many others. Arts Connection Foundation feels proud to honor the bold legacy of these artists.
