Join artist, designer and activist Tanya Aguiñiga and Shannon R. Stratton, MAD’s William and Mildred Ladson Chief Curator, for a conversation exploring the ongoing community-art and interventionist activities of the bi-national artist collective AMBOS: Art Made Between Opposite Sides, featured in the exhibition Tanya Aguiñiga: Craft and Care. Participating AMBOS collective members include Jackie Amezquita, Cecilia Brawley, Gina Clyne, Natalie Godinez, and Diana Ryoo.
Founded by Aguiñiga and launched in 2015, AMBOS is a long-term initiative that activates sites along the US–Mexico border through collaborative art-making and storytelling projects. Started as a month-long activation at the San Ysidro border crossing in Tijuana, it has evolved its focus to record and paint a picture of life along the length of the border. To date, AMBOS, in collaboration with artists and community organizations working with border issues/themes, has produced programs along the border between the United States and Mexico, stopping at thirteen US/Mexico ports of entry, and crossing a total of forty times. In 2018 Aguiñiga will complete the project, activating the remainder of the border from where she left off at El Paso/Ciudad Juárez.Buy tickets/get more info now
