Teresita Fernandez

September 12 – October 20, 2012

Lehmann Maupin Gallery
201 Chrystie Street
New York, NY

In her fifth solo exhibition at Lehmann Maupin Gallery, Teresita Fernández creates works that evoke the dramatic and universal experience of looking at the night sky. The exhibition consists of a single, large-scale installation built on site in the soaring double-height space of the Chrystie Street gallery. Made up of thousands of translucent, colored layers of polycarbonate, the hovering form becomes like sculptural painting, filtering the natural light in the space to create a color field reminiscent of the aurora borealis.

Teresita Fernández appointed to U.S. Commission on Fine Arts

September 16, 2011 (New York) — President Barack Obama has appointed Teresita Fernández, a MacArthur Award winning visual artist, to serve on the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts, a federal panel that advises the President, Congress and governmental agencies on national matters of design and aesthetics. Fernández lives and works in New York and is represented by Lehmann Maupin Gallery.

Members of the arts panel play a key role in shaping Washington’s architecture by approving the site and design of national memorials and museums; advise the U.S. Mint on the design of coins and medals; and administer the National Capital Arts and Cultural Affairs program, which benefits non-profit cultural entities that provide arts programming in Washington. Seven commissioners appointed by the President serve four-year terms.

Past members have included architects, landscape architects and artists, including Daniel Chester French who sculpted the statue of Abraham Lincoln at the Lincoln Memorial and landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr., whose projects include the National Mall, Jefferson Memorial and the White House grounds.

Teresita Fernandez Exhibition: “Amethyst Cinema” at La Galerie Pfriem | Rue Saint-Trophime, Lacoste, FRANCE

Jul. 02 – Sep. 03, 2011

Galerie Pfriem at SCAD Lacoste

Rue Saint-Trophime
84480 Lacoste, France

The SCAD exhibitions department presents a site-specific sculpture by acclaimed artist Teresita Fernández. A continuation of her “Eruption” series and inspired in part by the surroundings of Provence, this work engages the viewer in an active exploration of surface and space. Nuances reveal themselves in her alluring use of materials-in this case a vast plane covered in glass beads that shimmer and reflect the painted surface just beneath. In a subtle yet evocative experience, gallery visitors become immersed in a field of color, form and texture suggestive of topography and natural phenomena.

Teresita Fernández – Focus

Fort Worth, TX

April 17 to June 19, 2011

Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
3200 Darnell Street,
Fort Worth, TX 76107

Sculptor Teresita Fernández creates work in response to nature. Reminiscent of clouds, rainstorms, waterfalls, and stars in the night sky, Fernández’s mercurial forms shimmer, float, and undulate before our eyes. The artist is interested in generating an intimate experience with each of her installations. As she has put it, “What I’m after is a lingering, ephemeral engagement. Slow, quiet, and with enough depth kinesthetically to be recalled by the viewer after the work is no longer in front of them.”

Cuban Americans – Our America: The Latino Presence In American Art – Smithsonian Museum

October 25, 2013 – March 2, 2013

 

American Art Museum
8th And F Street NW
Washington DC
 

An exhibition opening next month at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, “Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art,” will highlight a chapter of art history that remains a secret to far too many Americans.

Since joining the Smithsonian in 2010, E. Carmen Ramos, the curator of Latino art at the American Art Museum, has had an ambitious mandate: to strengthen our holdings of Latino art and present that collection in a fresh way. “Our America,” which she curated, will display the results of that quest so far. It will include 92 works (by 72 artists), fully 63 of which have been acquired since 2011.

This exhibit is well represented by Cuban American Artists including Luis Cruz Azaceta, Maria Brito, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Teresita Fernandez, Ana Mendieta, Abelardo Morell, Maria Martinez-Cañas, Arturo Rodriguez, Emilio Sanchez, and Rafael Soriano.
