Ana Teresa Fernández

Ana Teresa Fernández, born in 1981 in Tampico, Mexico, lives and works in San Francisco. She explores the politics of intersectionality through time-based actions and social gestures, translated into masterful oil paintings, installations and videos. Within her work, performance becomes a tool for investigation, illuminating the psychological and physical barriers that define gender, race, and class. Her work has been exhibited throughout North America and Europe and has been collected by institutions such as the Denver Art Museum, the Nevada Museum of Art, and Kadist Art Foundation.
