Kimball Education Gallery

Artist Ana Teresa Fernandez invites visitors to engage with Surface, which explores issues of identity, sensuality, and victimization through a series of installations. Using large-scale 3D text, these works will be crafted from colored animal skins and mirrors. The word "surface" derives from Middle French, which literally means “above face." Fernandez will look at the current political and social climate and struggles with judgment and racism.
