María Magdalena Campos-Pons: Behold

María Magdalena Campos-Pons: Behold is a monographic exhibition of a visionary voice in photography, immersive installation, painting, and performance. Spanning nearly four decades of visually engaging artworks, the exhibition explores Campos-Pons’s prescient and sensorial work—transporting viewers across geographies, mediums, and spiritual practices. In her explorations of migration, diaspora, and memory, Campos-Pons draws on feminism, photoconceptualism, and Yoruba-derived Santería symbolism to weave together personal narratives and global histories. A sweeping, multisensory survey, the artist’s first since 2007, Behold highlights Campos-Pons’s dedication to creating new modes of understanding, as well as her engagement with both historical and present-day challenges.
