Elemental presents an unparalleled opportunity to experience over 50 works by one of the nation’s leading contemporary artists. This exhibition will introduce visitors to the artist’s expansive conceptual approach to landscape. Through large-scale sculptures, experiential installations, and mixed media works, Fernández brings to light relationships between elemental materials, nature, history, and the cultural, socio-political references tied to the perception of place. 

Following the talk, Fernández will sign copies of the Elemental catalogue, while supplies last. Join us on the terrace for live music by Lumin, art-making, and drink specials.
