Finding Balance
María Magdalena Campos-Pons
February 23 – April 29, 2023
436 Jackson Street, San Francisco, CA

Afro-Cuban artist María Magdalena Campos-Pons addresses issues of history, memory, gender and religion through her work; she investigates how each one of these themes informs identity. Campos-Pons employs painting, installation, performance, video and photography to create autobiographical works that invite close examination and consideration.

Marking the 20th Anniversary of Gallery Wendi Norris and inaugurating their new headquarters at 436 Jackson Street, Finding Balance is the second solo presentation for Campos-Pons with the gallery. The exhibition borrows its name from Campos-Pons’s monumental 28-panel multimedia masterwork, which is the centerpiece of the show. The exhibition will focus on Campos-Pons’s large-format polaroid works, including a complementary array of multi-paneled works that have never been shown by the gallery.

The past year has witnessed a surge of interest and excitement around Campos-Pons, demonstrated by recent acquisitions of her work by The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Princeton University Art Museum; Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC; the Speed Art Museum, Louisville; the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University; the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, and other public and private collectors.
