Tierra Firme was honored to present JUNTXS, at the Latino Cultural Center in the winter of 2018. The show opened on January 19 and ran through March 24, 2018.
JUNTXS: A Border Arts Symposium invited new approaches to considering the politicized yet liminal space of the borderlands through the use of film, comics, printmaking, and textiles. Artists Analise Minjarez & Sarita Westrup of Tierra Firme headline the exhibition using craft media and installation art to create portraits about their home on the TXMX border. JUNTXS also includes contemporary artworks by Teresita de la Torre (Tustin, CA), Caitlin Diaz (Los Angeles, CA), Mustang Jane (Juarez, MX), Zeke Pena (El Paso, TX), Killy Joy & Mazatl (Mexico DF). On March 24, 2018 the community was invited to join in for drop-in art activities, closing reception, and an artist talk.
