Princeton University Art Museum : Christina Fernandez : Multiple Exposures


Christina Fernandez explores Mexican American identity in a new Princeton University Art Museum retrospective, Multiple Exposures. Through work that spans three decades, Fernandez compels us to reconsider history, the border, and the real lives that inhabit and cross them.

Fernandez, who generally works in series and across various modes of photography— documentary, portraiture, performance—is especially interested in the experiences of Mexican Americans. Her photographs engage with the everyday realities of being an artist, teacher, and mother through photographs that acknowledge both the beauty and the precarity of a creative life. They also investigate and assert her identity, often framing her hometown of Los Angeles or figures from her family as a central focus.

Fernandez’s photography has been celebrated throughout her career and her work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the J. Paul Getty Museum, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, among others.


Christina Fernandez: Multiple Exposures is curated by Joanna Szupinska, senior curator at the California Museum of Photography
