LA FRONTERA is a powerful exhibition showcasing the work of established and emerging contemporary artists who explore themes of immigration, migration, detainment and asylum. Their work reflects global turmoil, migration and border issues and offers fresh viewpoints on human rights.
In the midst of an international debate on immigration, this project is designed to provide a timely forum for reflection and discussion. Despite historic political attempts to divide people, artists have been consistent drivers of innovation and creativity to solve border issues and propose solutions revolving around this highly-charged subject matter.
- Exhibit organized by David J. de la Torre, Curator of Exhibitions.
- We are grateful to all participating artists, collaborators and lenders including Victor Cartagena, Juan Fuentes, Matt Gonzalez and Acción Latina/El Tecolote.
We present these four questions to ask on the subject of border crossing comes up in our lives.
1. Before America, where exactly is my family from?
2. How do I identify with the experience of immigrants?
3. In what ways do I benefit from immigrants who have come to this country?
4. Starting now, what can I do to help support others as they make their home here?
