Christina Sanchez Juarez

Christina Sanchez was born in Woodland, a farming town in California’s central valley. In 2002, she completed her undergraduate degree in Studio Art from San Francisco State University. From 2002 to 2010 she worked at a small inner-city private school in Oakland, California. During that time, Christina took on various roles: she taught Kindergarten, mentored teachers, served as Vice Principal, and organized the school’s first art program from the ground up. She now lives in Los Angeles and received her Masters in Fine Arts in Public Practice from the Otis College of Art and Design in 2012.
 
In 2011, Christina initiated the Break/Pausa project as a dialogical investigation into the lives of immigrant restaurant workers living in Los Angeles. Break/Pausa is aimed at engaging the most hidden and marginalized people of this workforce, the “Back-of-House Workers.” Through informal interviews, performative interventions, formal performances and installations, and dialogue with advocacy organizations, the project seeks to uncover and archive worker histories as well as raise public awareness about pertinent workers rights and quality of life issues.
 
Since relocating to Los Angeles Christina has assisted the artist Suzanne Lacy on a variety of projects. She produced a video of Lacy’s historic 1977 performance Three Weeks In May for the exhibition Doin’ It in Public: Feminism and Art at the Woman’s Building, which was a part of The Getty’s Pacific Standard Time Initiative. Christina also produced two exhibition videos for Suzanne Lacy and Pilar Riano’s La Piel de la Memoria Revivida, which were installed in the Museo de Antioquia in Medellin Colombia as a part of the Encuentro Internacional de Medellín 2011 (MDE11). Christina accompanied Lacy to Medellín and worked as an artist assistant on the installation of this exhibition.
