Description/

Work from the Extraño series draws from the Spanish word extraño’s two meanings: the experience of missing (to miss) and the adjective, strange. The braided wall works are made up of a combination of raw cotton and flax combined with ice-dyed technicolor weavings. The Extraño objects were made in the company of grief, gratitude, rage, exhaustion, and worry the artist has experienced recently in response to the constant threats our BIPOC community faces and the diverse affects and losses of the pandemic.


Tanya Aguiñiga

designer

Tanya Aguiñiga (b. 1978) is a Los Angeles based artist/designer/craftsperson who was raised in Tijuana, Mexico. She 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. Aguiñiga is a United States Artists Target Fellow in the field of Crafts and Traditional Arts, a NALAC and Creative Capital 2016 Grant Awardee. She has been the subject of a cover article for American Craft Magazine and has been featured in PBS's Craft in America Series. Aguiñiga is the founder and director of AMBOS (Art Made Between Opposite Sides), an ongoing series of artist interventions and commuter collaborations that address bi-national transition and identity in the US/Mexico border regions. AMBOS seeks to create a greater sense of interconnectedness while simultaneously documenting the border.
