Juventino Aranda: Esperé Mucho Tiempo Pa Ver
WSU Pullman

Juventino Aranda’s work expresses a search for identity at the intersection of Mexico and America. As the artist has stated, “I am Mexican and second generation ‘American.’ I am not Hispanic, Latino, and definitely not Spanish—even though I live everyday with the consequences of their conquest.” Aranda’s sharp-witted art navigates this cultural borderland, drawing from pre-Columbian sources as well as current affairs related to the social, political, and economic struggles of late capitalism and notions of the American dream.

Wordplay: Print/Text/Image
WSU Pullman

Wordplay features artists who use text as an integral element of their creative practice in printmaking and print based media. The work in this exhibit illustrates the charged relationships between images, text, formats and their context. Pulling from popular forms of advertising and display, ordinary written notes, reinterpretations of existing texts, to forceful political statements, these artists play with the familiarity of text to unexpected ends.

Hostile Terrain 94 Exhibition
WSU Pullman

Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94) is a participatory art exhibition created by the Undocumented Migration Project (UMP) and directed by UCLA anthropologist Jason De León. Occurring in more than 130 cities globally, the installation raises awareness about the realities of the U.S.-Mexico border, focusing on the deaths that have occurred since 1994 as a result of the Border Patrol policy known as “Prevention Through Deterrence” (PTD). HT94 is realized with the help of local volunteers who record names, age, sex, cause of death, condition of body, and location of recovery on toe tags for each person, which are then pinned on the map in the exact location where those remains were found.
