Artist Walkthrough & Brunch: Teresita Fernández
Best known for her immersive installations and public projects that explore the various historical and psychological implications of the genre of landscape, Teresita Fernández’s most recent exhibition at Lehmann Maupin, Fire (America), debuts a 16-foot glazed ceramic wall panel depicting a nocturnal landscape engulfed in flames, as well as a new series of abstract landscapes made from burned paper. Fernández has also created an immersive, 100-foot panoramic drawing on site comprised of built-up, dimensional layers of solid charcoal applied directly to the gallery’s walls.
On the occasion of Frieze Week, the gallery will host a brunch as part of the Lower East Side Morning on Friday, May 5 from 10 AM to 12 PM. Fernández will give a walkthrough of her exhibition at 11AM.
