The School of Art + Design Announces New Faculty Amy Sanchez Arteaga

Amy Sanchez Arteaga is the cofounder of Cognate Collective

Amy Sanchez Arteaga makes art, teaches, and writes about living as a transborder subject between the Californias. Since 2010 she has collaborated with Misael Diaz as Cognate Collective, a binational research and art collective that explores how cultural and economic exchange between transnational communities can be mobilized to build networks of solidarity that defy solidifying (geo)political boundaries.

She has an MFA in Art from UC Irvine with an emphasis in Critical and Curatorial Studies, where she also completed the Critical Theory and Graduate Feminist Emphases. She is currently a lecturer at SDSU.
