STATE OF THE ARTS - Border Crossers

091821_border_crossers.jpg

Border Crossers is a large-scale performance and participatory procession involving several lightweight robotic sculptures and the trans-border communities in El Paso, Texas and Juarez, Mexico. 

Border Crossers will perform a peaceful, symbolic, “crossing” of the U.S. - Mexico border using the combined power of art, technology and community to create a radically positive and inclusive view of border culture. The project will culminate in a series of coordinated public ‘activations’ at multiple sites in the El Paso, Texas/Juarez, Mexico area in collaboration with the Rubin Center for the Visual Arts at The University of Texas at El Paso. Originally Broadcast on September 18, 2021
