Christina Fernandez | Getty and MoMA

March 2019


Congratulations to Christina Fernandez, whose iconic installation of photographs and text Maria’s Great Expedition (1995–96) is now on view at the Getty Museum in the exhibition Encore: Reenactment in Contemporary Photography through June 9, 2019. The work comes from the Getty Museum’s permanent collection. Curated by Arpad Kovacs of the Department of Photographs, the exhibition brings together seven artists who explore the past via personal history, art history, and political history.

The installation can also be viewed in New York at the Museum of Modern Art in their new acquisitions space. The work was acquired last year using the Modern Women’s Fund.
