The Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) proudly presents Judithe Hernández: A Dream is the Shadow of Something Real. This exhibition draws from the Museum’s collection and the artist’s studio & archives and features over twenty new pastels as well as early sketchbooks that foreshadow Hernández’s work today.

Her evocative portraits of women navigating invented landscapes—a style she has developed over the last 40 years—are enshrouded in symbols from a vast lexicon of Western and pre-Columbian art, as well as an encrypted personal iconography. You will experience those fragmented shadows the artist has stitched together from ancient world cultures, current events, and dreams.

This exhibition is organized by the Museum of Latin American Art and is curated by Edward Hayes, MOLAA Curator of Exhibitions.
