Best known for her experiential sculptures and public installations, 2005 MacArthur Foundation Fellow and Brooklyn-based artist Teresita Fernández presents Fire (United States of the Americas) 2 as the eighth wall installation in the McNay’s AT&T Lobby. Presented in conjunction with Pop América, 1965–1975, Fire invites viewers to contemplate the social history of North America, and offers compelling commentary with striking visual elements that include a large map of the United States.
