DESCRIPTION

The border wall is a frequent topic in today’s headlines, yet its history dates back to the turn of the century. After the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, there were calls for a fence along the southern United States border to deter Chinese immigrants from re-entering the country. As a result, most moved south and created their own communities throughout Latin America. This exhibition looks broadly at the influence of Asian labor and culture in the Americas with artists from Latin America, the United States and Asia, exploring the body and soul of forced migrations.
