TUG Collective

New Sharon, ME

TUG Collective (Gaelyn and Gustavo Aguilar) focuses on creating contact zones that build the foundations needed for creatively and critically exploring links between socio-cultural practices and social equity. While at Bemis Center, TUG will complete a project started in 2016 where they traveled the National Historic Lewis and Clark Trail tapping into the generative power of the taco as one of the apostles of ‘Mexican’ food in the United States. Their project ‘Who Eats at Taco Bell?’ is a platform for thinking about how the interlocking dynamics of immigration, social race, and colonialism in U.S.-American history continue to resonate with a range of critical themes: socioeconomic mobility; movement and borders; assimilation and appropriation; and “cultural citizenship”.
