“The border is a very difficult place to describe. Anything I say about it, I'll also say the exact opposite about it.”
In Borders Visualized from PechaKucha Night El Paso’s 11th Volume, speaker Kerry Doyle presents the mission of the Rubin Center for Visual Arts at UTEP with a selection of work from exhibitions over the first 10 years. Borders are meant to divide. As border tensions rise, artists –both performance and visual– have been creating works to represent the relationship between the bordering cities of El Paso and Ciudad Juarez. The Rubin Center now has a decade’s worth of stories to show and tell.
