How much history can one fabric hold?

In 2019, Dominguez Hultgren earned a dual-degree MFA/MA in Fine Arts and Visual and Critical Studies from California College of the Arts. Her research interests include material and embodied rhetorics, loom technologies, decolonizing material culture, and analyzing textiles as a performative critique against the visual.

She headlined Untitled, ART (SF) as Facebook’s artist-in-residence, and her first solo museum show, I was India: Embroidering Exoticism, is on view at the San Jose Museum of Quilt and Textile through July 2020.
