Christina Fernandez: Multiple Exposures
California Museum of Photography
September 10, 2022 - February 5, 2023
This landmark exhibition surveys the work of Christina Fernandez, the crucially important Los Angeles-based artist who has spent thirty 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.
The exhibition will be accompanied by the first major monographic catalogue of her work, co-published with the Chicano Studies Research Center at UCLA.
Christina Fernandez: Multiple Exposures is organized by UCR ARTS and is curated by Joanna Szupinska, Senior Curator, California Museum of Photography at UCR ARTS. Chon Noriega, Director, Chicano Studies Research Center at UCLA, is curatorial advisor.
This exhibition is available to other venues through UCR ARTS Traveling
