Schedule of Events
Exhibition opening “Borders” Monda Gallery.
Friday, November 3, 5-7 pm.
Approaching the Border will feature video works by five international artists that challenge us to examine our thinking about the US/Mexico border. As a group, these videos meditate on the social phenomena and politics of the border in an era when migration and the reemergence of nationalism are key global issues. Some artists situate their work in the actual space of the borderlands, in either México or the US, and thus bear the different inflections that the politics of the boundary manifest on each side. Other projects meditate on the power of borders as powerful signifiers and means of shaping our perceptions of identity and belonging.
Friends invited to a walk-through of the Exhibition with the curator, followed by a light reception on the Museum of Art Loggia.
