Fraenkel Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition of work by Martine Gutierrez, opening November 18, 2021. Gutierrez’s elaborately produced narrative scenes reference pop culture to explore the complexity of identity. The show will highlight images from two recent series, Body En Thrall and Plastics, as well as Indigenous Woman, the 124-page magazine for which Gutierrez produced every element, from fashion spreads and ads to an editor’s letter. Gutierrez uses herself as a model in the magazine’s glossy, seductive imagery, and has described the project as a celebration of “ever-evolving self-image.”
