Exhibition title:

Show Me Your Papers / A Ver, Y Tus Papeles

Exhibition Description:

Everyday, hundreds of thousands of people cross borders. At these crossings, governments ask individuals to present papers for verification of migration status, documents that restrict entry to those individuals lucky enough to be verified by proof.  For migrants without papers, the mundane question “Show me your papers/ A ver, y tus papeles?” is not mundane, but rather an impossible interrogation that forces these individuals to risk their lives in an effort to avoid being verified. Having papers, therefore, becomes a matter of life or death.  This  exhibition presents artists whose work on paper deals with issues of borders, migration, dual identity, as explored through print media.

Artists: Golnar Adili, Miguel Aragon, Carlos Barberena, Adriana Barrios, Tulu Bayar, Pamela Dodds, J. Leigh Garcia, Juana Estrada-Hernandez, Eddy A. López, Emma Nishimura, Marco Sanchez, Patricia Villalobos-Echeverria.

Opening Reception - Fri April 5 from 6:30-8:30 PM Free & open to the public

On View - Sat April 6 & Sun April 7 from 12-4 PM Free & open to the public
