> DESCRIPTION

MOCA's Pivot Points exhibitions focus on the museum's extensive collection. Teresita Fernandez received her first solo museum exhibition at MOCA's former building in 1994 and has since achieved world renown for her installations that evoke the relationship between space and the body. Untitled (Swimming Pool), donated to the museum by Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz, was created for the museum and was the first work to be exhibited in MOCA's Pavilion Gallery as part of its 1996 inaugural exhibition Defining the 90s: Consensus-Making in New York, Miami and Los Angeles. This installation illustrates MOCA's focused approach to collecting pivotal works that mark important moments in the development of the artists' work and turning points in contemporary art. Over the past 15 years, Fernandez has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions worldwide and she has completed several large-scale site-specific commissions in Seattle, Dallas, Naoshima, Japan, London, UK, and New York.
