2 Columbus Cir, Map

212-299-7777


01-03-2018 12:00:00 23-09-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York La Frontera | 10:00 AM Nearly two thousand miles long, the US-Mexico border (la frontera) is the most frequently crossed international border in the world. Although predominantly depicted in the American media as a hub of drug trafficking and violence, the border—porous in nature—is also a place that allows for the exchange of ideas, wealth, and culture. Recently at the forefront of political and cultural conversation following the current US President's anti-immigration discourse and executive orders, the border has been characterized by contradictions since the nineteenth century, when the US annexed an important portion of Mexican territory. For Mexicans, Central Americans, and the United States citizens living alongside it, the border presents daily challenges that carry within them both hope and devastation. It is a complex physical, economic, cultural, social, and emotional landscape of human interaction. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=284627 Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)
