‘Between Here and There’ opens at NMSU University Art Gallery

August 24, 2015

The University Art Gallery at New Mexico State University opens its doors for its fall exhibition opening, “Between Here and There,” at 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 3. 

In this two-person exhibition, nationally renowned artists Paul Turounet and Terri Warpinski confront the complexities surrounding borders as junctions that designate the present and future for many migrants in transition, as well as the effects of these built boundaries on existing communities in border regions.

“With our close geographic proximity to the U.S./Mexico border, understanding immigration issues is essential to gaining a broader understanding of our area and our neighbors,” said Marisa Sage, director of the gallery, which is part of the College of Arts and Sciences. “This exhibition poses the question: Are the arts capable of answering important questions related to the border, sparking critical thinking and problem solving for border issues, and igniting critical conversation in this area?”
