Exhibition Overview

The work of Agustín Fernández is most recognizable for its ambiguous and precariously balanced forms, erotic overtones, surreal juxtapositions, and metallic palette. Inspired by the demands of survival in an urban environment and the mundane objects that clutter its alleys and streets. Agustín Fernández: Ultimate Surrealist is organized by the Agustín Fernández Foundation and curated by Donald Kuspit. The Agustín Fernández Foundation would like to thank the international platform G-Global for its support as well as the following individuals: Joseph Hage Aaronson LLC, Darlene and Jorge Perez, Gilbert and Judy Shelton, Dr. Emilio Suarez. Additional support provided by: Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation, Zor and Irina Gorelov, John and Lauren Oramas, Hilda Capo and Blas Reyes, The Yoshida Family, and Damian J. Fernandez.
