Jane Terrazas: Feb 10, 2017

Cuidad Juarez artist, Jane Terrazas will be discussing human rights issues experienced by residents in her hometown and in the state of Chihuahua in the context of artistic activsim on Friday February 10th at 3:30pm at the Centro Cultural de la Raza.

Terrazas is a textile artists who uses raw material such as re-used fabric, women's stockings, plastic, electro sensitive material, yarn and threads to make reflection of the systematic gender violence. Taking as an object of study the atrocities that occur in her hometown of Cuidad Juarez, she invites us to reflect on textile sculpture, weaving, loom and contemporary embroidery as urban interventions to create a dialogue with the community about new forms of economic conscience to break with the frustration, speculation, exploitation and bloodshed of our current oppressive system.

Terrazas studied design at the Autonomous University of Guadalajara and did an artist residency at the IFCA in Yokohama Japan. Her work has been published in magazines and newspapers such as: Ka Volta, Fusion Mag, Amapola Cultura, El informador, Picnic, La tempestad y Art agenda (Nota sobre Yonke), Faboulosly Feminist, Remezcla, Quilombismo, TV UNAM, Nueva Mujer, Borderland TV, Museo Textil de Oaxaca, Crónica Jalisco.

Jane Terrazas' work is currently on display at the Transnational Struggles: Intersectionalites Across Borders group art exhibit at SD City College Luxe Gallery. The exhibit is part of the biannual Bi-National Border Conference hosted by the Chicana/o Studies department at SD City College.
The presentation will be followed by an artist reception at Luxe Gallery located on the 5th Floor of V Bldg. (1080 16th st. SD CA 92101). Artist reception is from 5-8pm.

A very special thanks to our host, the Centro Cultural de la Raza, for the community space!
