Blog: Learn More About Artist Teresita Fernández

Can you name #5WomenArtists? Teresita Fernández—an internationally acclaimed artist who is being honored at this weekend’s PAMM Art of the Party—is known for prominent public installations and large-scale experiential sculptures designed to evoke striking landscapes. Her work and influence has been vital to the evolution of PAMM for over a decade. Commissioned by the museum in 2002, Fernández designed an oval room that housed an immersive, minimalist installation exploring the elements of light, shadow, water, clouds, and foliage. PAMM’s collection includes multiple works by Fernández. Eclipse (2002) was featured in Routes of Influence, an exhibition of the museum’s permanent collection, and her massive glazed ceramic mosaic pictured above, Fire (America) 5 (2017), has served as the focal point of all three chapters of On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection. Tickets for Saturday’s PAMM Art of the Party can be purchased at pamm.org/artoftheparty2018.
