Carmina making tortillas in her ReMexico performance


Carmina Eliason is an interdisciplinary artist who makes interactive spaces to instigate dialogue, connection, and reflection on culture, identity, and social issues. She uses the familiarity of food, kitchen tables, folk games,and other domestic practices to form connections, relationships, and ask critical questions of contemporary society. Through the course of her projects, participants create and witness complex and interweaving narratives about lived social experiences.

Carmina holds an MFA in Photography at San Jose State University and a BA in Cultural Anthropology from CSU Monterey Bay. When she is not making art she works as a photography instructor for children and community college.
