> DESCRIPTION

This exhibition focuses on artists’ investigations of issues related to the U.S./Mexico border, a geographic area of much debate and contention. Through photography, sculpture, works on paper, video, and new media, subjects such as migrant labor, immigration law, national sovereignty, the Dream Act, and border control will be examined in terms of their current social and ideological impact. 

The exhibition features new and recent works by artists from the U.S., Mexico, and Canada.
