Borders Visualized

BY KERRY DOYLE
@ VOL 11 ON OCT 10, 2015

“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.

Hyper modernism

BY HERIBERTO IBARRA
@ VOL 11 ON OCT 10, 2015

Hypermodernism thru the eyes of a binational photographer. Two countries, three states, two cities merged into one persona. Traveling thru countries is an everyday thing when living in a diverse border town full of color, flavor and a distinctive separation; photographing it becomes necessary to capture as much as possible to bring the hypermodernism of ones eye.

The El Paso Transnational Trolley Project

BY PETER SVARZBEIN
@ VOL 13 ON JUN 23, 2016

"These were vehicles of economic mobility."

In The El Paso Transnational Trolley Project from PechaKucha Night El Paso Vol. 13, Peter Svarzbien shares his project to get El Paso's trolleys running again as they did in their heyday. Svarzbien is a photographer, artist and now city Councilman of El Paso. He once imagined the historic streetcars returning to the streets of El Paso again with his MFA masters thesis "The El Paso Transnational Trolley Project." Several years later, this project no longer resides only in our imaginations as the first tracks are now being laid in the streets of El Paso for the new streetcar line. With El Paso's first streetcar line in many years now under construction Peter is not content to stop here, but is now gathering political support to push for the restoration of trolley service over the international bridge - reconnecting Juarez and El Paso's fabled international streetcar service. Peter's presentation inspires us to consider how art can operate on a grand city scale to improve our quality of life.
