Air Gallery Documentary Screening says
Meredith Drum’s documentary "Taking Residence" tells the story of the pivotal A.I.R. Gallery, the first non-profit all-women’s gallery in the U.S. founded in 1972 in downtown New York City. Ana Mendieta was one of the members in the group, which included many important artists of the time.

"Taking Residence" was made on the occasion of an exhibition about A.I.R. at Fales Library and the Tracey/Barry Gallery at New York University in 2008. The video was produced by Kat Griefen and A.I.R. Gallery with major funding provided by Fales Library, and it was shot, edited and directed by Meredith Drum.

This piece is presented in conjunction with "Energy Charge: Connecting to Ana Mendieta," an exhibition on view at the ASU Art Museum Sept. 24–Dec. 31.
