Art and Weaving with Consuelo Jimenez Underwood

Fiber artist and weaver Consuelo Jimenez Underwood isthe daughter of migrant agricultural workers, a Chicana mother and a father of Huichol descent. She received her BA and MA from San Diego State University and her MFA from San Jose State University, where she became a tenured professor. Her work is, among many other places, in the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Oakland Museum of Art. In our conversation, we discuss Consuelo's dreams of becoming an artist as a child working in the fields, why she insisted on making a space for weaving as art in academia, her series of works commemorating the people who lose their lives crossing the highways near the border between Mexico and California, and so much more.

This is a longer episode than usual, with many stories. Comment below to continue the conversation.

This was my favorite episode yet – thank you for interviewing Consuelo. I’ve seen her on craft in America, and she’s phenomenal. It was great to get to listen to her for a more in depth conversation.

It’s great to have a weaving podcast again – would love to hear from more art and floor loom weavers!
