About the Exhibition

Through the works of six contemporary artists, Andrea Bowers, Blane De St. CroixMargarita Cabrera, Tony de los Reyes, Zhi Lin, and Hung Liu, The Other Side explores recurring issues of immigration, border relations, and labor practices that have persisted throughout U.S. history and remain timely today. By presenting these emotionally poignant and conceptually engaging works, The Other Side hopes to offer viewers a humanized perspective on complex immigration issues often overshadowed by mass media and politics.
