SJMA is pleased to present the landmark exhibition Christina Fernandez: Multiple Exposures.

This landmark exhibition presents the work of Christina Fernandez, whose photographs and installations explore migration, labor, gender, and her Mexican American identity.

Christina Fernandez: Multiple Exposures surveys over three decades of Fernadez’s most important photographic series and installations.

Informed by her family’s involvement in the Chicano movement, Fernandez’s conceptual practice has paired aesthetic inquiry with political commitment since the 1990s. Working between portraiture and landscape photography, Fernandez addresses the intersections between the personal and the political as grounded in her immediate community in East Los Angeles and her family’s history of migration. Fernandez’s first monographic museum exhibition invites us to reconsider history, borders, and the lives that cross and inhabit both.
