    Eileen Cowin is an artist who sees living as a means to break boundaries, and psychology as a way to confront us with strange attitudes or to implicate us in seemingly self-imposed spatial confinements. –Art Papers April 2007 by Eve Wood

The Artists, Community and Teaching Program presents visiting artist Christina Sanchez Juarez

Christina Sanchez Juarez is a socially and politically engaged artist working in the public sphere on projects that address social justice for underserved communities. Her discursive practice operates at the intersection of performance, community organizing, and popular education to investigate how collectivity and the arts can merge to acknowledge the issues of the working poor and bring about social change. In 2011 she co-founded the Break+Pausa project as a long-term, Los Angeles based artistic and culinary inquiry into the lives of immigrant restaurant workers. The Break+Pausa project has organized participatory performances in a wide variety of Southern California venues including the Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art, the Dignity at Darden picket line, Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, and the 2nd Los Angeles SUR: Biennial 2013. In 2013 she co-curated exhibition Tequio Aquí, Tequio Allá at the William Grant Still Art Center. The exhibition brought together artists involved in examining the Oaxacan practice of tequio, a mutual aid tradition of compulsory community service. Christina is a member of TeAda Productions, a theatre company dedicated to the development and presentation of performances by people of color. She holds a BA in Studio Art from San Francisco State University and an MFA (2012) in Public Practice from the Otis College of Art and Design. Otis awarded Christina the inaugural Public Practice teaching fellowship in 2012. She is also a recipient of the 2014 SPArt Los Angeles grant, awarded to artists who intend to create social change through socially engaged art.
