  • Lucia Cuba Oroza

    Assistant Professor of Fashion Design

    Profile:

    
    

    Lucia Cuba’s work approaches fashion, textiles, design and the exploration of garments and other wearable forms as performative and political devices, broadening the understanding of the role of design objects from purely functional, commercial or aesthetic considerations, to social, ethical and political perspectives. As a fashion designer and scholar, Cuba is interested in issues of gender, biopolitics, health and global fashion practices. She has developed projects concerned with health, activism, education and the study of non-western fashion systems.

    Cuba received an MFA in Fashion Design & Society from Parsons, The New School University (USA) and a BSc in Social Psychology from Cayetano Heredia University (Peru), where she also undertook MA studies in Educational Psychology and PhD studies in Public Health. Her work has been exhibited at the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum (Rotterdam), the Museum of Arts and Design (New York), Museo Amparo (Puebla), Albuquerque Museum (NM), OCT Art & Design Gallery (Shenzhen), BRIC Arts Media (New York), Fashion Space Gallery (London), Sur Gallery (Toronto), ARTLIMA (Lima), among other cultural venues.   She currently works as Assistant Professor of Fashion Design at Parsons, The New School University (NY) and as an independent designer.
