BIO

Cristina Victor's interdisciplinary art practice explores ways to generate inclusive dialogue about the layered complexities inherently involved in discussing identity. Through performance, textiles, installation, and public engagement, she designs and constructs ways to expose, critique and challenge binary perspectives on culture, often delivered by mass media outlets.

Research and Vexillology act as a foundational thread for her textile works. Whether collaborating with the public, artists, organizations or working within auto-ethnography, Cristina creates works that are visually seductive, symbolically loaded and experimentally activated.

Victor holds an MFA in New Genres from the San Francisco Art Institute and a BA in Latin American History from Sarah Lawrence College. She has exhibited and performed throughout the Bay Area and nationally. She is an avid vexillolinaire, Cuban and Miami history freak and Spanglish specialist.
