The Contemporary Art Council hosts a screening of Art21’s Borderlands. Following the 50 minute screening, we will be joined by featured artist, Tanya Aguiñiga for a Q & A.

Set in the region between the United States and Mexico—long a site of political conflict, social struggle, and intense creative ferment—these artists respond to one of the most divisive moments in the history of this area.

“Borderlands” features artists Tanya AguiñigaRafael Lozano-HemmerRichard Misrach, and Postcommodity.
