Christina Sanchez is a socially and politically engaged artist working in the public sphere on projects that address social justice for marginalized communities. Her discursive practice operates at the intersection of performance, community organizing, and popular education to investigate how collectivity and the arts can merge to acknowledge the issues of the working poor and bring about social change. In 2011 she co-founded the Break+Pausa project as a long-term, Los Angeles based artistic and culinary inquiry into the lives of immigrant restaurant workers. The Otis Collage of Art and Design awarded Christina the inaugural Public Practice teaching fellowship in 2012. She holds a BA in Studio Art from San Francisco State University and an MFA in Public Practice from the Otis College of Art and Design.
