Upcoming Public Programs

Art21: Borderlands Screening and Discussion

Thursday, January 7, 2021 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Description: Holy Family Community Center presents an online viewing of the “Borderlands” episode of Art21: Art in the 21st Century. A discussion of the episode will follow featuring Karin Campbell, Phil Willson Curator of Contemporary Art at Joslyn Art Museum, Rachel Adams, Chief Curator and Director of Programs at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, and Misael Soto, Fall 2020 Bemis Artist-in-Residence, based in Miami. The conversation will be moderated by Lori Tatreau, Director of the newly forming Holy Family Community Center, a work of the Society of St Vincent de Paul.

Set in the region between the United States and Mexico—long a site of political conflict, social struggle, and intense creative ferment—these artists respond to one of the most divisive moments in the history of this area. “Borderlands” features artists Tanya Aguiñiga, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Richard Misrach, and Postcommodity.

Join us as we look at some of the ways contemporary artists are creating work about the world around them.
