Presenting diverse paintings, sculptures and other works by 18 contemporary artists from Mexico, the United States and Cuba along with three canvases by Frida Kahlo and a small selection of Pre-Columbian, Baroque and Colonial art works, this chiefly textual catalogue explores the multifaceted significance of the bleeding heart as a symbol of fertility, love, suffering and death in Latin American culture, religion and art. Six critical texts discuss the historical development and pervasive force of the image in Mexican society and its use as a central symbol by the artists represented in the exhibition.
