This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Teresita Fernández and Los Angeles County Museum of Art curator Stephanie Barron. 

Fernández has created a major new series of installations for MASS MoCA in North Adams, Mass. Titled "As Above So Below," the exhibition moves through the museum’s architecture to create enormous vistas and smaller, more intimate moments with sculpture. The show includes three large-scale installations that are informed by Fernández’s interest in landscape, art about landscape, and our perception of landscape, including Black SunSfumato (Epic) and Lunar (Theatre). Curated by Denise Markonish, “As Above So Below” is on view through March, 2015. The exhibition is accompanied by a sleek, handsome 96-page book.

These are two views of Fernandez’s Sfumato (Epic) as installed at MASS MoCA.  

In 2005 Fernández received a MacArthur Foundation “genius” fellowship, and she currently serves on the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts. She has been the subject of solo exhibitions at MOCA North Miami, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Artpace, the ICA Philadelphia, Castello di Rivoli outside Turin, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and others.
