April 27 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

| Free

Artists Alison Lee Schroeder and Gerardo Camargo were invited by the Mexican Cultural iInstitute to co-curate the exhibition “Underlying Borders” at the Mexican Cultural Institute in Washington, DC. Camargo and Shroeder are two of the five participating artists:

Gerardo Camargo
Alison Lee Schroeder
Felipe Baeza
Marela Zacarias
Irene Clouthier

This exhibition shows sculptures by artists who are immigrants addressing immigration and border Issues. Irene Clouthier will be talking as contributing artist, addressing the exhibition “Underlying Borders”.

These sculptures and installation work showcase the issues around their personal migrant narratives between Mexico and the United States. The artists work from perspectives that seek to reconfigure and blur borders and boundaries in a game of tension between locations and relocations.

The participating artists explore concepts related to institutionalized notions such as identity, gender, or nationality. Through their work, the artists discuss geographic distances, memory, and ways in which the body can be inhabited and communicated as zones of transition.
