(At Home) On Art and Eco-Trauma: Artist Talk With Teresita Fernández
April 21, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0
Wednesday, April 21; 7 p.m. ET
Free, registration required for Zoom. Live stream also available on YouTube and Facebook Live.
Teresita Fernández will join Hirshhorn associate curator Marina Isgro to discuss how she brings together concepts, materials, rigorous research and evocative imagery. The Cuban American artist, based in New York, creates immersive, sculptural installations and monumental public projects defined by a rethinking of landscape that emphasizes the connection between place and material. Using gold, malachite, graphite, ironore and other minerals that have loaded ties to colonization, she exposes the hidden histories of violence embedded in the landscape. Her subtle, conceptual practice is characterized by a quiet unraveling of site, power, visibility and erasure in which she layers diverse cultural references to unearth what she calls “stacked landscapes.”
