Official Common Experience Exhibition
 
Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94) is a participatory art project created by the Undocumented Migration Project, a nonprofit research and arts-education collective directed by anthropologist Jason De León. This art installation is intended to raise awareness about the realities of the U.S.-Mexico border by focusing on the deaths that have been happening almost daily since 1994 as a direct result of the Border Patrol policy known as “Prevention Through Deterrence.”
 
The centerpiece of the Hostile Terrain 94 exhibition is an enlarged map composed of approximately 3,200 toe tags representing people who have died while crossing a particular stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border between the mid-1990s and 2020. The construction of this memorial at Texas State Galleries is realized with the help of local volunteers invited to participate in the making of these tags, which are later installed on the map in the exact locations where the individuals’ remains were found.

This art exhibition is on view from August 24 to November 10, 2020.

New Play Development Workshop Reading: Stoop Pigeons

Stoop Pigeons takes place in the early 2000s when the Bushwick area of Brooklyn was radically gentrifying. The audience witnesses the span of a decade that illuminates the culture of the neighborhood and the people who inhabit it. Gentrification can push out a neighborhood matriarch like Ms. Suzy and make a new transplant like Amanda significantly transform the nature of the block. Stoop Pigeons also illustrates how this metaphorization amplifies drug-related crime. As the demographic changes and introduces a new type of client, those who are severely affected are still poor Black and Brown residents. What can we do as neighbors to ensure that nobody gets left behind?

Sunday: Final Play Development Workshop Reading
Greenwood: An American Dream Destroyed

Greenwood: American Dream Destroyed examines the tragedy that took place on May 30-June 1, 1921, in the Greenwood District of Tulsa, Oklahoma. In highly segregated Tulsa, an African American community known as the “Negro Wall Street” grew and thrived. Black citizens created entrepreneurial opportunities for themselves with a vibrant business district including banks, hotels, cafes, movie theaters, modern homes, and an excellent education system. Then disaster and devastation struck. Tulsa police arrested a young black man on an unsubstantiated charge. An inflammatory report in the Tulsa Tribune the next day spurred a racial confrontation and the Greenwood District found itself looted and burned for over 24 hours by white mobs. Thirty-six city blocks lay in charred ruins, over 300 black residents were killed, 600 African American businesses burned to the ground, and thousands were left homeless. Greenwood: American Dream Destroyed tells this powerful story from the perspective of three generations of the Boley family, a representative composite of an African American family that may have lived during that tragic and tumultuous time.

Official Common Experience Exhibition
 
Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94) is a participatory art project created by the Undocumented Migration Project, a nonprofit research and arts-education collective directed by anthropologist Jason De León. This art installation is intended to raise awareness about the realities of the U.S.-Mexico border by focusing on the deaths that have been happening almost daily since 1994 as a direct result of the Border Patrol policy known as “Prevention Through Deterrence.”
 
The centerpiece of the Hostile Terrain 94 exhibition is an enlarged map composed of approximately 3,200 toe tags representing people who have died while crossing a particular stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border between the mid-1990s and 2020. The construction of this memorial at Texas State Galleries is realized with the help of local volunteers invited to participate in the making of these tags, which are later installed on the map in the exact locations where the individuals’ remains were found.

This art exhibition is on view from August 24 to November 10, 2020.

Lesly Reynaga has made a striking impression on America’s musical landscape, making waves with music described by the Austin American-Statesman as “catchy dance beats that carry powerful lyricism.” On her most recent release, Dual Passport (2019), Reynaga pays homage to her roots with a bilingual sound, highlighting stories about her childhood and upbringing in Mexico; immigration issues; and her pride in calling America home, having recently become a U.S. citizen. Noted for her passion-filled showmanship, Reynaga has captivated audiences from her native Monterrey, Mexico to New York City.
 
This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Texas Music History and is presented in conjunction with Hostile Terrain 94, an exhibition on view at Texas State Galleries from August 24 to November 10, 2020.

Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94) is a participatory art project created by the Undocumented Migration Project, a nonprofit research and arts-education collective directed by anthropologist Jason De León. This art installation is intended to raise awareness about the realities of the U.S.-Mexico border by focusing on the deaths that have been happening almost daily since 1994 as a direct result of the Border Patrol policy known as “Prevention Through Deterrence.”
 
The centerpiece of the Hostile Terrain 94 exhibition is an enlarged map composed of approximately 3,200 toe tags representing people who have died while crossing a particular stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border between the mid-1990s and 2020. The construction of this memorial at Texas State Galleries is realized with the help of local volunteers invited to participate in the making of these tags, which are later installed on the map in the exact locations where the individuals’ remains were found.

This art exhibition is on view from August 24 to November 10, 2020.

Dynamics of International Migration:
Immigrant Women and Mental Health
 
Growing up in Mexico City, Dr. Arlette Vila heard many personal stories from her parents and other Cubans in exile about fleeing their country for a better life. Since her arrival in the United States, Dr. Vila has continued to hear stories of immigrants. What they all have in common is that they fled their countries for better lives. Her scholarly work focuses on the effects of violence on the mental health of forced migrant women from Central America resulting from direct and indirect political and social violence in their country of origin, as well as violence during the migratory journey through Mexico. She is an adjunct assistant professor in the Steve Hicks School of Social Work at University of Texas at Austin.

Learning about the violence experienced in the country of origin as well as the migratory journey is crucial to determining the mental health status of immigrants. In her presentation, Dr. Vila shares an understanding of the framework for forced migration, provides insight regarding how adequately migrants’ needs are being considered upon the arrival at the U.S., and provides techniques for conducting interviews with hard-to-reach populations.

Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94) is a participatory art project created by the Undocumented Migration Project, a nonprofit research and arts-education collective directed by anthropologist Jason De León. This art installation is intended to raise awareness about the realities of the U.S.-Mexico border by focusing on the deaths that have been happening almost daily since 1994 as a direct result of the Border Patrol policy known as “Prevention Through Deterrence.”
 
The centerpiece of the Hostile Terrain 94 exhibition is an enlarged map composed of approximately 3,200 toe tags representing people who have died while crossing a particular stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border between the mid-1990s and 2020. The construction of this memorial at Texas State Galleries is realized with the help of local volunteers invited to participate in the making of these tags, which are later installed on the map in the exact locations where the individuals’ remains were found.

This art exhibition is on view from August 24 to November 10, 2020.

At the start of each decade the law mandates that the boundaries of congressional districts must be redrawn in order to reflect the most recent changes to the population distribution. This is a process of immense importance for the proper functioning of our democracy — the shape of congressional districts greatly influences who runs and who wins in congressional elections, and even influences who controls Congress or state legislatures, or city councils. This process is meant to guarantee the adequate and just representation of the voices of every citizen, but this ideal is not always met.

The focus of this event is a conversation on political districting with a mathematical perspective. It will feature a presentation by Dr. Daryl DeFord, an assistant professor of mathematics at Washington State University. He previously worked in the Geometric Data Processing Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he focused on building tools and developed theory for detecting and combating gerrymandering. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with members of academia, voting rights groups, and a citizens' commission on redistricting:

  • Dr. Nestor Guillen, moderator, assistant professor of mathematics, Texas State University
  • T.J. Costello, vice chair of Austin Independent Citizens’ Redistricting Commission
  • Dr. Michael Faber, assistant professor of political science, Texas State University
  • Joaquin Gonzalez, staff attorney at the Texas Civil Rights Project
  • Stephanie Swanson, issue chair of Redistricting & Census, League of Women Voters of Texas

Professor Ronald Rael holds the Eva Li Memorial Chair in Architecture and a joint appointment in the Department of Architecture and the Department of Art Practice at the University of California, Berkeley. In 2014 his creative practice, Rael San Fratello (with architect Virginia San Fratello), was named an Emerging Voice by The Architectural League of New York. In 2016 Rael San Fratello was also awarded the Digital Practice Award of Excellence by the The Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA).
 
Rael is the author of Borderwall as Architecture: A Manifesto for the U.S.-Mexico Boundary (2017), an illustrated biography and protest of the wall dividing the U.S. from Mexico, and Earth Architecture (2008), a history of building with earth in the modern era to exemplify new, creative uses of the oldest building material on the planet. Emerging Objects, a company co-founded by Rael, is an independent, creatively driven, 3D Printing MAKE-tank specializing in innovations in 3D printing architecture, building components, environments and products.

His work has been published in the New York Times, Wired, MARK, Domus, Metropolis Magazine, PRAXIS, Thresholds, Log, and Public Art Review, and it has been included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

This lecture is presented in conjunction with Hostile Terrain 94, an exhibition on view at Texas State Galleries from August 24 to November 10, 2020.

Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94) is a participatory art project created by the Undocumented Migration Project, a nonprofit research and arts-education collective directed by anthropologist Jason De León. This art installation is intended to raise awareness about the realities of the U.S.-Mexico border by focusing on the deaths that have been happening almost daily since 1994 as a direct result of the Border Patrol policy known as “Prevention Through Deterrence.”
 
The centerpiece of the Hostile Terrain 94 exhibition is an enlarged map composed of approximately 3,200 toe tags representing people who have died while crossing a particular stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border between the mid-1990s and 2020. The construction of this memorial at Texas State Galleries is realized with the help of local volunteers invited to participate in the making of these tags, which are later installed on the map in the exact locations where the individuals’ remains were found.

This art exhibition is on view from August 24 to November 10, 2020.

Official Common Experience Exhibition
 
Currency Exchange is an ongoing exploration that evolved out of DesignInquiry’s Fall 2019 Inquiry and topic, Currency. Since that time, the group of collaborators from North America and Europe have met regularly to make several bodies of work; these can be found in a site-based installation at the Texas State Galleries, the field outside of the Joann Cole Mitte building, and online at the website below. This is installation is part of the Texas State Galleries FL3X space programming in cooperation with the School of Art and Design.
 
The work presented is a statement of collective exchange and a snapshot of the currency that we are in. We are on shifting sands, continually adjusting, observing and taking part in a process that we wonder if we ever learn from. Operating under the assumption that the existence of flow is essential, what is the nature of the currents around us? What is valuable? Is it the same for everyone? How are we navigating? What are we creating here? Is this of use to anyone else? Where’s the give and take?

Considered "one of the two or three most exciting, scary-good vocalists in rock today" (David Brown, KUT/NPR), Nina Diaz began her musical career at the age of 13 when she co-founded the all-female rock group Girl in a Coma (2002–2018). Three years later, Girl in a Coma was signed to Joan Jett's Blackheart Records, thus beginning many years of extensive traveling, creating, and performing for audiences around the world both as a headlining act as well as a direct support for several highly acclaimed artists. In 2014, Nina began her journey as a solo artist and soon released her debut album, The Beat is Dead, on Cosmica Records (2016). In 2020, Nina celebrates seven years of sobriety and continues to create and connect with her audience through music, art, and life experiences she shares openly.
 
This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Texas Music History and is presented in conjunction with Hostile Terrain 94, an exhibition on view at Texas State Galleries from August 24 to November 10, 2020.

Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94) is a participatory art project created by the Undocumented Migration Project, a nonprofit research and arts-education collective directed by anthropologist Jason De León. This art installation is intended to raise awareness about the realities of the U.S.-Mexico border by focusing on the deaths that have been happening almost daily since 1994 as a direct result of the Border Patrol policy known as “Prevention Through Deterrence.”
 
The centerpiece of the Hostile Terrain 94 exhibition is an enlarged map composed of approximately 3,200 toe tags representing people who have died while crossing a particular stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border between the mid-1990s and 2020. The construction of this memorial at Texas State Galleries is realized with the help of local volunteers invited to participate in the making of these tags, which are later installed on the map in the exact locations where the individuals’ remains were found.

This art exhibition is on view from August 24 to November 10, 2020.

Currency Exchange is an ongoing exploration that evolved out of DesignInquiry’s Fall 2019 Inquiry and topic, Currency. Since that time, the group of collaborators from North America and Europe have met regularly to make several bodies of work; these can be found in a site-based installation at the Texas State Galleries, the field outside of the Joann Cole Mitte building, and online at the website below. This is installation is part of the Texas State Galleries FL3X space programming in cooperation with the School of Art and Design.
 
The work presented is a statement of collective exchange and a snapshot of the currency that we are in. We are on shifting sands, continually adjusting, observing and taking part in a process that we wonder if we ever learn from. Operating under the assumption that the existence of flow is essential, what is the nature of the currents around us? What is valuable? Is it the same for everyone? How are we navigating? What are we creating here? Is this of use to anyone else? Where’s the give and take?

Currency Exchange is an ongoing exploration that evolved out of DesignInquiry’s Fall 2019 Inquiry and topic, Currency. Since that time, the group of collaborators from North America and Europe have met regularly to make several bodies of work; these can be found in a site-based installation at the Texas State Galleries, the field outside of the Joann Cole Mitte building, and online at the website below. This is installation is part of the Texas State Galleries FL3X space programming in cooperation with the School of Art and Design.
 
The work presented is a statement of collective exchange and a snapshot of the currency that we are in. We are on shifting sands, continually adjusting, observing and taking part in a process that we wonder if we ever learn from. Operating under the assumption that the existence of flow is essential, what is the nature of the currents around us? What is valuable? Is it the same for everyone? How are we navigating? What are we creating here? Is this of use to anyone else? Where’s the give and take?
 
This art exhibition is on view from October 12 to November 6, 2020.

Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94) is a participatory art project created by the Undocumented Migration Project, a nonprofit research and arts-education collective directed by anthropologist Jason De León. This art installation is intended to raise awareness about the realities of the U.S.-Mexico border by focusing on the deaths that have been happening almost daily since 1994 as a direct result of the Border Patrol policy known as “Prevention Through Deterrence.”
 
The centerpiece of the Hostile Terrain 94 exhibition is an enlarged map composed of approximately 3,200 toe tags representing people who have died while crossing a particular stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border between the mid-1990s and 2020. The construction of this memorial at Texas State Galleries is realized with the help of local volunteers invited to participate in the making of these tags, which are later installed on the map in the exact locations where the individuals’ remains were found.

This art exhibition is on view from August 24 to November 10, 2020.

Currency Exchange is an ongoing exploration that evolved out of DesignInquiry’s Fall 2019 Inquiry and topic, Currency. Since that time, the group of collaborators from North America and Europe have met regularly to make several bodies of work; these can be found in a site-based installation at the Texas State Galleries, the field outside of the Joann Cole Mitte building, and online at the website below. This is installation is part of the Texas State Galleries FL3X space programming in cooperation with the School of Art and Design.
 
The work presented is a statement of collective exchange and a snapshot of the currency that we are in. We are on shifting sands, continually adjusting, observing and taking part in a process that we wonder if we ever learn from. Operating under the assumption that the existence of flow is essential, what is the nature of the currents around us? What is valuable? Is it the same for everyone? How are we navigating? What are we creating here? Is this of use to anyone else? Where’s the give and take?

Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94) is a participatory art project created by the Undocumented Migration Project, a nonprofit research and arts-education collective directed by anthropologist Jason De León. This art installation is intended to raise awareness about the realities of the U.S.-Mexico border by focusing on the deaths that have been happening almost daily since 1994 as a direct result of the Border Patrol policy known as “Prevention Through Deterrence.”
 
The centerpiece of the Hostile Terrain 94 exhibition is an enlarged map composed of approximately 3,200 toe tags representing people who have died while crossing a particular stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border between the mid-1990s and 2020. The construction of this memorial at Texas State Galleries is realized with the help of local volunteers invited to participate in the making of these tags, which are later installed on the map in the exact locations where the individuals’ remains were found.

This art exhibition is on view from August 24 to November 10, 2020.

Official Common Experience Exhibition
 
Currency Exchange is an ongoing exploration that evolved out of DesignInquiry’s Fall 2019 Inquiry and topic, Currency. Since that time, the group of collaborators from North America and Europe have met regularly to make several bodies of work; these can be found in a site-based installation at the Texas State Galleries, the field outside of the Joann Cole Mitte building, and online at the website below. This is installation is part of the Texas State Galleries FL3X space programming in cooperation with the School of Art and Design.
 
The work presented is a statement of collective exchange and a snapshot of the currency that we are in. We are on shifting sands, continually adjusting, observing and taking part in a process that we wonder if we ever learn from. Operating under the assumption that the existence of flow is essential, what is the nature of the currents around us? What is valuable? Is it the same for everyone? How are we navigating? What are we creating here? Is this of use to anyone else? Where’s the give and take?
