Hey friends! Would love to see you in Denver TOMORROW night for an exhibition Pattern has put together and the first opportunity to pick up a hard copy of American Backyard in person! • Repost of @patterndenver • Pattern's first exhibition looks at the Mexico–United States border by bringing two distinct bodies of work into conversation with one another. The show opens Thursday, May 16 at 7 pm. ⠀
Elliot Ross’s and Genevieve Allison’s “American Backyard” is a sweeping look at the 2,000-mile border. Through collected vignettes, the project aims to look at issues playing out in daily lives of those who live near the border. Beyond talk of the Trump wall, there is a larger, less transparent story to be told about these borderlands related to creolization, acculturation, habitat loss, surveillance and diversity.
