My Darling, Sexy, Beautiful Tropicanita
Installation. Dimensions variable. VAF Graduate Gallery, UCSD. September 7, 2013.

On the anniversary of the last night of Ana Mendieta, guests were invited to gather in a space
on which the layout of the apartment from which she fell had been taped to the floor. The last
movies she watched, Without Love and Dracula, were playing while Chinese food and champagne -
the last food and drink she consumed - was enjoyed by the ateendees.
