This exhibition focuses on artists’ investigations of issues related to the U.S./Mexico border, a geographic area of much debate and contention. Through photography, sculpture, works on paper, video, and new media, subjects such as migrant labor, immigration law, national sovereignty, and border control will be examined in terms of their current social and ideological impact.  The exhibition features new and recent works by artists from the U.S. and Mexico, including Andrea Bowers (Los Angeles, CA), Blane de St. Croix (New York, NY), Todd Drake (Greensboro, NC), Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (Montreal, Canada), Nicolas Lampert & Dan S. Wang (Milwaukee, WI/Chicago, IL), Pedro Lasch (Durham, NC), Susan Harbage Page (Chapel Hill, NC), Pedro Reyes (Mexico City, Mexico), David Taylor (Las Cruces, NM), and Perry Vasquez (San Diego, CA).
Zone of Contention: The U.S./Mexico Border is organized by Xandra Eden, Curator of Exhibitions, and will be accompanied by a brochure.
