The Mexican Cultural Institute is pleased to present Underlying Borders, an exhibition that brings together the work of five artists with an experience of migration between Mexico and the United States, who, from their own experience as migrants, work from perspectives that seek to blur and interweave elements through and across borders, drawing on the tension that exists between places.

The participating artists explore concepts related to identity, culture, and nationality through a variety of approaches and processes. Their work is a manifestation of their experience within these transition zones. They challenge us to consider, from distinct points of view, how we think of memory, the body, stereotypes, and implicit violence in our intertwined countries.

Mexican Cultural Institute is located at 2829 16th St. NW.
