Ana Teresa Fernandez - Foreign Bodies

April 03, 2014


Fernandez’ first solo exhibition, Foreign Bodies, at Gallery Wendi Norris explores how women navigate the geographic, social, and physiological boundaries between the United States and Mexico. Documenting her performances and installations using photography and the painted image, Fernández’s work reveals how women’s bodies become surfaces imprinted with political and social upheavals.

On Saturday, April 5, the gallery hosted Sean Kissane, Chief Curator of the Irish Museum of Modern Art in conversation with author Rebecca Solnit and San Francisco based artist, Ana Teresa Fernandez to discuss Carrington’s imaginative world and her influence on important artists working today.
