This presentation is held in conjunction with the exhibition OVERLOOK: Teresita Fernández Confronts Frederic Church at Olana, a collaboration between The Olana Partnership and the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros. In it, artist Teresita Fernández examines Frederic Church and his contemporaries’ response to the cultures and landscapes they experienced during their 19th century Latin American travels. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore Fernández’s perspective and respond to her provocative installation in Olana’s Sharp Family Gallery.
