Diamonstein-Spielvogel Lecture Series: Teresita Fernández

Teresita Fernández invited us to be the first to film her renovated Brooklyn studio and the installation of Paradise Parados, her site-specific, monumental sculpture at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. In this conversation with the National Gallery’s curator of contemporary art, Molly Donovan, Fernández discusses creating the film and the intentionality of her artistic practice.

This conversation was held as part of the Diamonstein-Spielvogel Lecture Series.  The Diamonstein-Spielvogel Lecture Series provides a forum for distinguished artists to discuss the genesis and evolution of their work in their own words. Dr. Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel and the late Honorable Carl Spielvogel generously endowed this series to make such conversations available to the public.
