Ionit Behar (Ph.D candidate in Art History at the University of Illinois at Chicago) joins Professor Daniel R. Quiles in a conversation about the rise of feminism-driven inquiries in Latin American Art History since the exhibition “Radical Women” (2017) at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. Despite that Latin America did not have a feminist movement (with the exception of Mexico), there has been an increase in research, exhibitions, and writing on Latin American women artists from a feminist perspective. Behar’s dissertation – titled “Intimate Space and the Public Sphere: Margarita Paksa in Argentina’s Military Dictatorship”- discusses Paksa’s work from the 1960s to 1980s, which was prominently featured in “Radical Women” and has received considerably more attention since then, after being underrecognized for decades.
