About Rebeca

Born in Mexico and now living in Los Angeles, Rebeca Méndez thrives on the threshold of disciplines and cultures, working in the boundary spaces between art and design, and between Mexico and the United States.

In her teachings as a tenured professor in the Design|Media Arts program at the University of California, Los Angeles, Méndez embodies what she herself has learned. She refuses to be “the expert” and constantly strives to destabilize predictable hierarchies and traditional pedagogical practices.
