OVERLOOK: Teresita Fernández confronts Frederic Church at Olana

The Olana Partnership/Olana State Historic Site is pleased to announce the ground-breaking exhibition "OVERLOOK: Teresita Fernández Confronts Frederic Church at Olana" at Olana State Historic Site. In this exhibition, an innovative collaboration between The Olana Partnership and the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros [CPPC], 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. In addition, the interactive sculpture Penetrable by the late Venezuelan artist Jesús Rafael Soto – a popular iconic work on loan from the CPPC that is coming directly to Olana from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art – will be installed on one of the most prominent scenic viewpoints in Olana's designed landscape for the duration of the exhibition.

Please note that the Sharp Family Gallery is located in the main house, which is open for tours Tuesday-Sunday. Other art pieces are being installed on grounds, which are open every day.
