Community Project

The Líneas afectivas project, carried out with high school students specializing in Architectural Drawing and Construction, aimed to create a publication in the form of a poster using photographs, graphic patterns, and short texts about the emblematic spaces of their community at the urban, domestic, and emotional scale. By generating a discourse about space that allows them to speak about their life experiences, the project sought to foster a greater sense of belonging and reflect on the specific living conditions of their community, while also imagining possible futures.
Technically, the project involved the use of patterns and abstraction techniques, typography, activation of negative space, dynamism, graphic hierarchies, narrative arc, and other graphic and editorial design concepts.



lives and works between Tijuana and Mexico City

Andrea Carrillo Iglesias (Tijuana, 1986) is a visual artist and designer who lives and works between Tijuana and Mexico City. His work combines research practices and artistic production exploring the relationship between image, power and knowledge, as well as its effects on the ways in which our reality is socially and aesthetically produced. His work fluctuates between moving images, immersive installations and performance. Through these media, she develops alternate stories that oscillate between reality and fiction, pointing to the ambivalence of production, the gray nature of power and the possibilities of the imagined. Carrillo Iglesias has a master’s degree in visual arts from the Sandberg Instituut, Rietveld Academy, and a master’s degree in Art, Design and Public Domain from Harvard University, where he also co-directed the FortyK gallery.
Carrillo has exhibited in Mexico, Colombia, the Netherlands, Spain and the United States. His most recent exhibitions are: Sobre el archivo, la historia y ninguno de los dos, at Espacio Odeón (2022), Jardín Satélite at Tenerife Espacio de las Artes (2021) y Roca, isla, glaciar at Museo Jumex (2021). Among her recognitions are the Counter Histories scholarship by the Magnum Foundation (2022), FONCA in the Alternative Media category of the Young Creators program (2020-2021) and she has been twice awarded by the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies to carry out research in the archives of the Museo de la Memoria in Santiago, Chile and the Hacienda Nápoles in Antioquia, Colombia (2016-2017). She is currently a member of the Coopia cooperative.
