El Tendedero/The Clothesline: Artist Talk with Monica Mayer at Newfields
October 30, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
In 1978, Mónica Mayer presented El Tendedero (The Clothesline) an installation at the Museum of Modern Art in Mexico City. The piece invited women of different ages, occupations and neighborhoods to respond to the phrase, “As a woman, what I dislike the most about the city is:” on small pink slips which were placed on a clothesline. Most answers denounced sexual harassment in the street and public transport. Over the years El Tendedero has appeared many times, in different communities, responding to issues on violence against women. At the artist talk, Mayer will discuss feminist art since the 1970s, both within her work and that of other feminist artists.
