Art From The Borderlands

Article Image Alt Text

An exhibition of photographs by Minneapolis-based artist and photographer Xavier Tavera opened in Washington and Lee’s Staniar Gallery Sept. 2. The works will be on display through Sept. 27, with an artist’s talk and reception on Sept. 18. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. in Wilson Hall’s Concert Hall. After moving from Mexico City to the United States, Tavera said he experienced a sense of cultural alienation that compelled him to document the spaces, places, events, people and artifacts of those living in marginalized communities. This exhibition focuses on the notion of borderlands as Tavera explores the echoes of cultural clashes at the United States/Mexican border that reverberate through other Latina/o/x geographies.
