In Motion: Borders and Migrations

May 16, 2014 – Sep 27, 2014

Rosario Sotelo, Guerillas (video still), 2011

In collaboration with Professor Elena Shtromberg and the students from the course, Visual Culture along the U.S./Mexico Border at the University of Utah, the exhibit, In Motion: Borders and Migrations, will examine different manifestations of the Mexico and United States border in the visual arts, giving residents and visitors of Utah the experience of this unique geographic boundary through artist projects that offer both visual and conceptual alternatives to mainstream media representations.

This exhibition complicates the one-dimensional treatment of the border as a linear and fixed entity. By exploring varied representations of this international line, In Motion: Borders and Migrations seeks to expand on and subvert traditional ideas of the border while revealing the shifting social, political, economic, and aesthetic circumstances surrounding the discourses of multiculturalism and globalization.
