Caldo de Cultivo Urbano Art Collective from Mexico City

On June 1, 2005, I spoke with Adriana García, Susana Bautista and Gabriela Santos of the Caldo de Cultivo Urbano Art Collective of Mexico City. This interview is in both spanish and english thanks to Estela Arzola, a student at UC Santa Cruz who helped bring the collective from Mexico City to Santa Cruz.

The Colectivo Caldo de Cultivo Urbano is a women’s grassroots artistic collaboration comprised of the three women. The collective was formed in 2001 at La Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México in Mexico City.

The art of Adriana, Susana and Gabriela will be displayed at Santa Cruz Barrios Unidos through the month of June. These exhibits feature printmaking techniques that convey the experience of women in urban life. Barrios Unidos is located at 1817 Soquel Ave. All events will be in Spanish and English.

On June 1-2, 2005, the Colectivo Caldo painted a mural at Barrios Uniods.
