The photograph “Untitled (Glass on Body Imprints — Face),” above, made in 1972 by Cuban-American performance artist Ana Mendieta, is one of more than 60 works of art depicting the body or traces of the human figure in the Princeton University Art Museum’s exhibition “Body Memory,” running through Jan. 4. The exhibition, drawn almost entirely from the museum’s permanent collection, features contemporary prints, drawings, collages, video, and contemporary and historical photographs.
