OVERLOOK: Teresita Fernández confronts Frederic Church at Olana

May 14 – September 5, 2017

The Olana Partnership is pleased to announce the 2017 featured exhibition, OVERLOOK a groundbreaking installation by artist Teresita Fernández.  Working with guest curator Sara Meadows, Fernández draws from the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC) and the Olana Collection to reexamine Frederic Church and his contemporaries’ response to the cultures and landscapes experienced during their Latin American travels. OVERLOOK features The Olana Partnership’s largest loan exhibition in the Evelyn & Maurice Sharp Gallery with 55 works from CPPC including Penetrable by Jesus Rafael Soto which will be sited within Olana’s designed historic landscape and 18 site specific works by Fernández.  Visitors will have the opportunity to explore Fernández’s response and draw their own conclusions through this thought provoking site-specific installation.
