AMBOS at the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles
October 21 - December 9, 2016
Opening Reception: October 21, 6pm - 9pm
AMBOS at the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles will feature works made at the US/Mexico border crossing in San Ysidro this past August. Artists included in this incredible exhibition are Tanya Aguiñiga, Ingrid Hernandez & Pieter Wisse, Moisés Horta Velenzuela, Cog*nate Collective, Gina Clyne, Eduardo Trejo and Marina Viruete.
Founded by Tanya, AMBOS is a project created to recontextualize borders and generate a localized hub for international collaboration. Through the repurposing of a vacant storefront this past August at the US/Mexico border crossing in San Ysidro, AMBOS (Art Made Between Opposite Sides) served as an idea lab for international creative collaboration. Through artist interventions and commuter collaborations that address bi-national transition and identity, AMBOS seeks to create a greater sense of interconnectedness in the border region, while simultaneously documenting the border artisan market scheduled for demolition.
