About the exhibition
Cultura Fronteriza is an incisive look at some of today’s most contentious topics: immigration, identity, and the border between Mexico and the United States. In a series of large-scale sculptures and participatory installations, artist Narciso Argüelles highlights the human impact of immigration and the complicated relationship between two sparring—yet interdependent—nations.
