Art against Borders

Art Against Borders: Hostile Terrain 94 & #FreeThemAll at the Henry Art Gallery

Tuesday, June 08, 2021, 4:30 PM — 6:00 PM | Register here

Free and open to the public! Registration required.

Borders, across the Americas and around the world, have come to represent spaces of violence, captivity, and death. How can artists, academics, and activists generate new stories and representations that allow us to challenge existing border politics and imaginaries? How can art help us actively and reflectively promote life over death, freedom over detention? Join us for a discussion of the art and activism of Undocumented Migration Project (Hostile Terrain 94) and La Resistencia (Free Them All).
