Opening Reception and Curator+Artist Conversation:
All The Sacrifices You’ve Made/Todos Los Sacrificios Que Has Hecho
A project by Borderland Collective
Thursday April 21, 6:00-8:00 PM at the History Museum
Recordings of local students play in the gallery, giving voice to a collage of photographs moving across a video screen. The smiling and sometimes serious portraits of aunts and uncles, parents, siblings, and friends complement stories of relationships, work, recreation, and contemporary life in the agricultural-worker communities of Yakima and Wenatchee. On the walls of the gallery, personal narratives are paired with photos from family albums as well as new works created by student contributors. As these families have provided food for Washingtonians, this exhibition offers food for thought – and you’re welcome to put pencil to paper and share your impressions at a community table centered in the space.
On April 21, explore this uniquely personal exhibition and at 7 PM meet its creators: Borderland Collective’s Jason Reed and Mark Menjivar will be here from Texas, alongside students and faculty from the College Assistance Migrant Program at the University of Washington. Join in what is sure to be a fascinating conversation!
