Christina Fernandez: Multiple Exposures

California Museum of Photography

September 10, 2022 to February 5, 2023

This landmark exhibition surveys the work of Christina Fernandez, the crucially important Los Angeles-based artist who has spent thirty years in a rich exploration of migration, labor, gender, her Mexican-American identity, and the unique capacities of the photographic medium itself. Christina Fernandez: Multiple Exposures brings together the artist’s most important bodies of works for the first time, allowing audiences to discover the threads that connect them, both formal and conceptual. Through work that spans decades, Fernandez compels us to reconsider history, the border, and the real lives that cross and inhabit them.
