Viviana Martínez Carlos is a transdisciplinary Mexican artist living in San Francisco whose work reflects on, among other things, memory and displacement. She earned her BA in visual arts from the University of Guanajuato, Mexico, and continued her studies in art and anthropology at the Center for Research and Higher Studies in Social Anthropology (CIESAS).
She has taught in the Las Fotos Project in Los Angeles and is a teaching artist at the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco.
Amalia Mesa-Bains makes many kinds of work with objects she collects, including photographs that are important to her. Some of her work is assemblage art, which is like three-dimensional collage. Inspired by a gallery tour of selected works in Amalia Mesa-Bains's exhibition, embellish a found picture frame with objects that activate your memories or feelings about a family photo. If you have a photograph you’d like to use, bring it (or a copy of it). If not, there will be photos here that you can use.
