Perennial Boundaries

October 27, 2016 – January 21, 2017  

An Art Talk contextualizing the exhibition, Perennial Boundaries will be held on October 29, 2016 at 1:00 pm. Be a part of the conversation with artists Michael Menchaca and Fernando Andrade as they and director of Ruiz Healy Art, Patricia Ruiz-Healy, explain works in the show.

In a time when the upcoming elections have border policies at the forefront of the agenda, Ruiz-Healy Art has organized an exhibition of contemporary art rooted in the socio-political experience of the U.S /Mexico border and Texas.  RHA is pleased to present Perennial Boundaries, an exhibition showcasing the artwork of Margarita Cabrera, César Martínez, Fernando Andrade, and Michael Menchaca.

Perennial Boundaries examines the infinite thread that a manmade confine such as a geographical divide creates.  The works included in this show provide the viewers with insights into the interests and concerns that have guided the creative impulses of these artists in their careers.  Each artist is working in a unique and individualistic practice informed by their personal experiences from living on either side of the border. This exhibition is an eclectic mix of homage and critical discussions of living in la frontera and immigration issues.
