About the Artist
Arlene Mejorado is a first-generation, transborder artist from Los Angeles, California working with analog and digital photography, video, and installations. In her practice she experiments with documentary forms, depicting truths that aren’t visibly represented or legible but are experienced viscerally. Through visual media, everyday materials, and repurposed documents, Mejorado engages in repair work, countering erasure and mending fragments in personal, collective, diasporic, and migrant experiences and stories. Specific subjects she explores are quotidian spectacles, performance, and pleasure, the construction of legacy in working class communities of color, culturally subversive spaces, and collective gestures of catharsis and resistance.
Itzel Alejandra Martinez is a multimedia artist who utilizes photography, video, and GIFs to re-contextualize established narratives.
Christina Noriega is a freelance journalist based in Bogotá, Colombia, where she reports on human rights, gender equality, culture, and social movements.
Mujeres en Medio is a women-of-color digital platform for storytelling.
