Exhibited Craft and Folk Art Museum, LA during “The US-Mexico Border: Place, Imagination, and Possibility”
Sep 10, 2017-Jan 7, 2018
The exhibition presents the work of contemporary artists who explored the border as a physical reality (place), as a subject (imagination), and as the site for production and solution (possibility.) The inclusion of artists from the various disciplines, including design, architecture, sculpture, painting, and photography, reflects the ways in which contemporary artists and designers themselves cross disciplinary borders. Many of the artists featured in the exhibition pursue a creative problem-solving process sometimes described as “design thinking”, which involves intention, social engagement, and the task of making.
