Artist Talk with Tanya Aguiņiga
April 26, 2017 at 4:30 pm
Santa Barbara City College, Physical Science Room 101
721 Cliff Dr. Santa Barbara, CA 93109

Tanya Aguiņiga, a prominent social practice artist from Tijuana, Mexico, will discuss her involvement in MCASB’s public art initiative, takepart | makeart within the broader context of her work as an artist, designer, and craftsperson.
Aguiņiga holds an MFA in furniture design from Rhode Island School of Design and a BA from San Diego State University. In her formative years she created various collaborative installations with the Border Arts Workshop, an artists' group that engages the languages of activism and community-based public art. Her current work uses craft as a performative medium to generate dialogues about identity, culture and gender while creating community. This approach has helped Museums and non-profits in the United States and Mexico diversify their audiences by connecting marginalized communities through collaboration.
