On view at MCASD

March 16, 2023 to August 13, 2023

Griselda Rosas: Yo te cuido is the artist’s first solo museum exhibition, presenting new textile drawings and sculptural installations that explore themes of inheritance and intergenerational knowledge. Rosas, who is based between San Diego and Tijuana, adopts embroidery skills learned from her mother, grandmother, and aunts, often using her young son’s drawings as foundations on which to layer, stitch, and build. Incorporating natural pigments and collage, Rosas combines these inventive images with colonial imagery to evoke a collision and circulation of cultures.


“Thematically, the works both touch on childhood within a broader framework of history and the border.”

“Art exhibitions to explore in San Diego in 2023”
SD Today

“The artist’s approach is unique ... using her young son’s own artwork as foundations to build upon.”


This exhibition is presented with the generous underwriting support of Marcia Hazan and Mark Cammell.
