La Frontera: Selected Works of Erin Currier

American Women (dismantling the border)

September 28, 2017 – January 7, 2018

La Frontera takes stock of a dream shared by all of our African, Asian, European, and Indigenous ancestors alike: a dream of the Americas in the context of freedom and liberation for everyone.  The work references the borders one must confront in pursuit of this dream: the physical US Mexico Border and its Mediterranean counterpart; as well as institutionalized borders that impose divisions between races and economic classes. Ultimately, La Frontera posits the potential of dismantling these borders. -Erin Currier
