Maria Cristina Tavera is a Latina artist, curator, and activist who lives and works in Minneapolis. Her work is influenced by her transnational upbringing split between Minnesota and Mexico. This installation explores the past concepts of "Casta", a term coined by the Spanish in the 17th and early 18th centuries to refer to people of mixed ethno-racial heritage and the contemporary typological concepts of racial identity in the Latin American diaspora.
