In the 1920s, Alfred Stieglitz made a series of photographs of clouds. In 1966, Carl André made a series of sculpture installations referring to Stieglitz’s earlier photographs. In the 1970s, Ana Mendieta made a series of performance sculptures of her own “silhouetted” body form situated in different landscape settings. Mendieta and André were married until Mendieta’s still-unexplained death, falling from their 34th floor apartment. André, the only witness to her death, was tried and subsequently acquitted of her murder.
