Christina Yglesias

Christina Yglesias is an LA-based artist, educator, and curator from the San Francisco Bay Area. Her video works use cinema and technologically mediated communication as material to explore how representations of romance are constructed. She received her BFA in 2014 from Mills College and her MFA in 2018 from University of California Los Angeles Design Media Arts department. During her time at UCLA, she worked to theorize and implement what she calls feminist post cinema, a practice focused on bridging the gaps between new media, expanded cinema, feminist film theory, and the history of feminist video art. She has also written about and given talks on the idea of a networked social practice, in which social interactions filtered through technology make up the material for artworks. She teaches video, photo, and new media classes and workshops to adults and youth at universities, community arts organizations, and nonprofits. She has curated film and video shows for Oddball Film+Video in San Francisco, The Great Wall of Oakland, SPRING/BREAK Art Show in New York City, Fusion Media’s Real Futures Fair, and community art spaces in Oakland, California. She has exhibited her video works in galleries, film festivals, and academic conferences in the US, Europe, and Asia.
