An exhibit of artistic responses to the sociopolitical environment of the US/Mexico border.



Opening Day Events: Saturday, October 124pm: Public Forum: Art at the Border6-8pm: Opening ReceptionIn conjunction with the November 2013 publication of curator Kate Bonansinga's book Curating at the Edge: Artists Respond to the U.S./Mexico Border, this exhibition investigates the artistic practices of contemporary artists who have responded to the current sociopolitical environment of the border between the U.S. and Mexico. The artists range in experience from emerging to established. Some of these artists are Mexican living in Mexico. Some are Mexican living in the U.S. Others are Mexican American. And yet others are U.S. citizens of European ancestry. All of them have investigated the border region. Many of them reside or have resided there. The link between them is a shared interest in the current climate of the U.S./Mexico border and the conveyance of this territory in visual terms. Subjects include immigration struggles, drug-related and domestic violence, craft as identity, and the fluidity of cross-border cultural exchange that defies physical walls. Photography, sculpture, and video are the focus.Artists include:Alejandro Almanza PeredaAdrian EsparzaMargarita CabreraMarcos Ramirez ERRETania Candiani & RSM (Rodrigo Guzmán)SIMPARCH
