Cassandra Mayela (b. Caracas 1989) is a self-taught textile artist who has lived in NY since 2014 when she forcedly migrated from Venezuela. Her personal experiences as an immigrant and a woman of color have shaped the urgencies in her work. She is curious about clothing’s story-telling capacities and is particularly interested in how migration affects one’s identity and ideas of belonging.

Through research, conversations, audience participation, and engaging with textiles and collected and found material, she creates community-oriented work that informs how fundamental changes in fabric can affect one’s perception of identity, highlighting new waves of empowerment.
