Born in Mexico, artist Ana Teresa Fernandez has long been fascinated by the U.S.-Mexico border as well as identity and gender. Her first solo exhibition, "Foreign Bodies," mixes photography, painted images, and video performance of a horse plunging into water to examine how women's bodies have taken on political and social messages. Fernandez joins us in studio to talk about her work.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Ana Teresa Fernandez, artist whose recent exhibit is "Foreign Bodies"
