Beginning in the 1920s, Mexican traditional crafts have been revered both north and south of the border, while California’s experiments in making have redefined the field since mid-century. This day-long program examines how contemporary artists, designers, and craftspeople in Mexico and California transform these legacies to new ends. In the morning, designers Sami Hayek, Christina Kim, and Laura Noriega discuss their collaboration with indigenous artists in the states of Jalisco and Oaxaca. In the afternoon, artists Tanya Aguiñiga, Gerardo Monterrubio, and Consuelo Jimenez Underwood address the way their work, using craft media, explore gender and political issues together with their own Mexican/American identities. The program also includes a keynote talk by textile artist James Bassler and a screening of Borders, the latest documentary from Craft in America.

Presented by LACMA in collaboration with Craft in America. Organized in conjunction with the LACMA exhibition «Found in Translation: Design in California and Mexico, 1915–1985» and the Craft in America Center’s «Mano-Made: New Expressions in Craft by Latino Artists.»
