Borders, bottles and barbed wire.
Artists working along the U.S.-Mexico border bring both the danger and terrible beauty of these arbitrary political crossings to life through sculpture, printmaking, photography, installation and film.
These borders divide both cultures and families. Indigenous people who traditionally straddled both sides can no longer hunt game across these borderlines.
“The U.S.-Mexico Border” opens on Saturday, Jan. 13 at the Albuquerque Museum. The show is being presented in conjunction with the companion exhibition at 516 ARTS opening Jan. 27. The museum show features works by two Los Angeles artists augmented by works from the permanent collection and major loans.
