This is a timely examination of what the physical barrier that divides the United States of America from the United Mexican States is and could be. The exhibit includes photographer Laurie Smith‘s large black & white photographic prints evocatively documenting the beauty and horror of the Wall alongside digital projections of Ronald Rael’s architectural renderings of sociocultural and ecological alternatives to notions of border wall. The online exhibit is accompanied by a virtual lecture on Wednesday, March 17, and it will be previewed/replayed on Monday, March 22.

Exhibition Curator: Annicia Streete is a visiting professor at the University of Colorado, Denver. Professor Streete is the faculty liaison for the NOMA student chapter. Special thanks to her students for assisting with this exhibit.
