March of the Quilt

_MG_6623-X3

Inspired by the AIDS Quilt, The Border Quilt  expresses how militarization has resulted in losses for border residents. On 2’ x 4’ cloth panels, border residents  tell stories of lives lost, loss of civil rights, loss of security, and loss of humanity.

The Border Quilt will start its pilgrimage in Arizona on March 30 and will continue to travel in New Mexico, Texas, and northern border communities.

Follow its journey by visiting this website regularly.

It’s a short drive, maybe 10 minutes, past the fast-food restaurants and strip malls of El Paso and over the I-10, where Texans sit in traffic to head home to the suburbs, then alongside the two fences—electric and brown metal—that divide Texas...

By Jill Holslin If you haven’t been to Tijuana in a while, now’s the time to come for a visit. The show “Collection of Elias-Fontes Historia y Relato” (History and Story) at CECUT, The Centro Cultural of Tijuana in Zona Rio, is an exhibition that asks serious questions about the role of the artist in the context of the relentless, pulsating vitality of contemporary capitalism.
