Making a Performance with Rachel Cardenas Stallings

Programmed by Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo

Join San Francisco–based artist Rachel Cardenas Stallings to create and perform a collaborative five-to-ten-minute performance. Through improvisation and games, participants will develop a script, props, masks, and costumes to complete the performance.

Rachel Cardenas Stallings views her work in painting, ceramic, textile, performance, and installation as an exploration of form, color, and texture. Her work often addresses immigration, her family’s crafting traditions, and spirituality. Originally from Utah, she earned her BFA in studio art from Brigham Young University and an MFA in art practice from UC Berkeley. She has participated in group exhibitions at CTRL+SHFT, Richmond Art Center, ADA Gallery, Guerrero Gallery, and BAMPFA, and cofounded and codirected Lago Projects in Oakland. She is currently an artist in residence at Facebook.
