PIVOT POINTS V: TERESITA FERNÁNDEZ
Knight Exhibition Series
November 30, 2011 – February 12, 2012
Opening Reception November 29, 7 to 9 pm
MOCA’s Pivot Points exhibition series illustrates the museum’s focused approach to collecting works which mark important developments in contemporary art and pivotal moments in artists’ careers. On view in Pivot Points V is Untitled (Swimming Pool), 1996, the first large-scale installation by Teresita Fernández. Fernandez received her first solo museum exhibition at MOCA’s former building in 1994 and has since achieved worldwide acclaim for her installations that evoke the relationship between space and the body. The work, which was donated to the museum by Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz, was created for the museum and was the first work to be exhibited in MOCA’s Pavilion Gallery as part of its 1996 inaugural exhibition Defining the 90s: Consensus-Making in New York, Miami and Los Angeles.
