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.


Meet the artist

Narciso Argüelles grew up on both sides of the border between Mexico and the United States. While still an undergraduate student at the University of California, San Diego, he started collaborating with the internationally known Border Art Workshop/Taller de Arte Fronterizo and soon became a full member. Narciso has exhibited at the 9th Biennale of Sydney, The First Johannesburg Biennale in South Africa, The Alternative Biennale in Tucuman Argentina, and all over the United States, including New York City, New Haven, and Los Angeles. Narciso lives and works in Oklahoma City.
