Shifting Perspectives: Visual Culture and the U.S./Mexico Borderlands
Independent scholar Tomás Ybarra-Frausto considers art and the changing nature of the immigration experience through the lens of “the archive and the repertoire,” a framework for understanding and transmitting cultural memory. This lecture examines some paradigmatic social and visual interventions of the archive (written texts) and the repertoire (performative texts) in U.S./Mexico border art and ultimately disputes the notion that border art is a manifestation of recent years.
