The Art and Culture of the US-Mexico Border: 2,000 Miles of Imagination that Unite and Divide Us

This program will address the muses that shape the social, cultural, and political identity on the US-Mexico border region looking a painting, murals and street art, music, and Chicano cinema. In addition, Professor Noriega is an affiliated curator at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), and he is responsible for leading several important gallery shows as part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time exhibitions taking place this fall throughout the West. Noriega will be addressing this unique regional approach to border art from an multi-institutional perspective.
