    For Freedoms: 50 State Initiative Town Hall Panel Discussion

    Join us and participate in this For Freedoms: 50 State Initiative Town Hall Panel Discussion presented by Blue Star Contemporary.

     

    The discussion features: Emily Butts, a current UT Austin master’s candidate in Art History and awardee of the Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions’ (LACE) third Emerging Curators program grant; Sehila Mota Casper, Field Officer for the National Trust for Historic Preservation; and Dr. Yolanda Chavez Leyva, Historian and Chair of the Department of History and an Associate Professor at UTEP.

     

    The panelists join artist and BSC Berlin Residency Alum, Adriana Corral, discussion focusing on Adriana’s site-specific artwork.

     

    In the spring of 2018, Adriana Corral unveiled her site-specific artwork, Unearthed: Desenterrado with the support of Black Cube a Nomadic Art Museum. Visible from the El Paso–Juárez horizon, the flag stands as a marker for the Rio Vista Farm, a facility most notably recognized as a key processing center to the Bracero Program. By calling attention to this overlooked part of American history, Corral’s work endeavors to stand as an acknowledgment of unknown human rights violations, as well as to inspire deeper conversations about our history—and future—of border control along the U.S.–Mexico border.
