Artists » Sandra de la Loza

2004 Fellow

Sandra de la Loza works uses a wide variety of media to explore the uses of public space and cultural memory. From her work with the Pocho Research Society, a pseudo-historical organization whose purpose is to reclaim erased histories, to her activist engagements with conferences such as Transitorio Público, de la Loza seamlessly fuses her roles as artist, educator and activist. Her recent body of photography Stoner Spots portrays sites temporarily occupied by those in search of illicit, transcendent or solitary experiences.

De la Loza has been included recently in Phantom Sightings: Art After the Chicano Movement, organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Vexing: Female Voices from East LA Punk at the Claremont Museum of Art; and Puerto Vallarta: Arte Contemporaneo 2008.
