Traveling Exhibit | The Border Project
The Border Project has received great accolades from viewers attending exhibitions at venues throughout the borderlands, including the Tohono O’odham Cultural Center and Museum and the Arizona State Museum. As a result of this consistent and positive feedback, The Border Project committee has transformed the project into a travel-ready exhibition with its own custom- made crate for shipping and hauling. This structure makes the artwork more durable and allows it, along with its message, to reach broader audiences. The exhibit is comprehensive enough to fill a large gallery space and versatile enough for pieces of it to compliment an adjoining exhibition. The exhibit comes with an installation manual and was built to accommodate many different venue spaces and goals.
Once installed the full exhibition requires at least 625 square feet of space. It includes photography, sculpture, drawing, writing, audio, and interactive elements. Presentation of the project can also include engaging participants in activities as a way to understand the project’s development and more importantly to engage in the individual process of examining their experiences and perspectives relating to the US / Mexico Border region. I have created a cultural and educational curriculum to accompany The Border Project as it continues to travel. All documentation and resources are freely available for interested artists, teachers, and organizations. To bring The Border Project to your area, contact us with your ideas and we will work to make the exhibit fit both your intentions and physical space.
