Elliot Ross: American Backyard
December 6, 2019 – January 4, 2020

Opening Reception: December 6 | 6 – 9 PM | RSVP

“Through an amalgam of portraiture and topographical studies of infrastructure imposed on the landscape, American Backyard looks at the reality of American lives on the border. Various cultural and political processes, which may be ambiguous elsewhere in the country, are amplified at the border. In an environment where the movement of both people and goods are vigilantly regulated, examined, and controlled, and where Federal laws regularly don’t apply, questions of social injustice and discrimination are matters of resounding consequence. Beyond talk of The Wall, there is a larger, less transparent story to be told about our Borderlands to do with creolization, acculturation, surveillance, diversity, and compassion.”
