Christina Fernandez: Multiple Exposures
Sep 16, 2023 - Jan 7, 2024
Multiple Exposures presents a survey of the work of Christina Fernandez, a crucially important Los Angeles-based artist, who has spent more than 30 years in an exploration of gender, labor, migration, and her Mexican American identity through photographic storytelling.
This landmark exhibition surveys the work of Christina Fernandez, the crucially important Los Angeles-based artist who has spent 30 years in a rich exploration of migration, labor, gender, her Mexican American identity, and the unique capacities of the photographic medium itself. Christina Fernandez: Multiple Exposures brings together the artist’s most important bodies of works for the first time, allowing audiences to discover the threads that connect them, both formal and conceptual. Through work that spans decades, Fernandez compels us to reconsider history, the border, and the real lives that cross and inhabit them.
