Victoria Cabezas and Priscilla Monge: Give Me What You Ask For

Victoria Cabezas and Priscilla Monge: Give Me What You Ask For

February 20, 2019

Edited by Karen Marta and Gabriela Rangel, Victoria Cabezas and Priscilla Monge: Give Me What You Ask For is a fully illustrated pocket book released to accompany the same-titled exhibition at Americas Society (February 13-May 4, 2019), including essays by Miguel A. López, Antonella Pelizzari, and Coco Fusco.

The publication is the first to bring together the work of Victoria Cabezas (b. 1950) and Priscilla Monge (b. 1968), two Costa Rican artists from different generations. It explores how the two artists have challenged conventional art disciplines, including painting and sculpture, by drawing on their own lived experiences. Monge and Cabezas both use experimental artistic strategies to advocate for women and to critique established patriarchal structures.
