DESCRIPTION

Alien Contexts : Mexico and the United States includes work by the following award-winning artists:  Alejandro Cartagena (Monterrey, b. Dominican Republic) whose on-going project, Between Borders, explores social contexts in small towns on the Mexican side of the border region; Fernando Brito (Culiacán, Sinaloa) whose project Tus Pasos Se Perdieron Con El Paisaje demonstrates the horrors of the trade in illegal drugs; Mayra Martell (Ciudad Juárez) whose project Ensayo De La Identidad, includes photographs of personal spaces and stories from interviews with family members of Las Desaparecidas de Juárez; David Taylor (Tucson) whose project Border Monuments depicts the range of monuments that mark the border between Mexico and US to suggest the relationship of political borders against varied geographies, and Anne Wallace (San Antonio) whose video projects derive from a 15-plus year study of the entire US-Mexico border.
