La Colectiva Speaker: Artist Maria de los Angeles Watch Maria de Los Angeles on Facebook Live.

Maria de Los Angeles is a New York City-based artist, raised in California, Mexican born, whose imagery focuses on issues of undocumented migration, displacement, identity, and otherness, working primarily in drawing, painting, installation, performance, fashion, and sculpture.

Students and participants will learn more about the artist's personal journey fulfilling her passion for art, drawing, and storytelling as an undocumented woman, her experience with DACA, her academic journey from community college student to earning her MFA at Yale and now a faculty member at the prestigious Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Maria de los Angeles' story will shatter some common misconceptions, challenge assumptions and biases, and surely bring inspiration to many students exploring the intersectionalities of identity, culture, and art in our present U.S. socio-political climate.
